    A great start, but this doesn't account for javascript based redirects.

      For this, you should just add an background queue to the system that is checking the page using a ruby web driver like selenium and then just approving it asynchronously.

        Then the next step would be for them to have full viewport Iframes loading the offending website.

        I'm not trying to be facetious, both things you've suggested are obviously fantastic ideas to implement. I'm just saying that fighting spam is a cat-and-mouse game, and until there's appropriate vote manipulation detection in place, the best way to curb spam is more active moderators or returning to an invite-only site.

          • I would first check if the IP is always the same
          • If not, implement some of those solutions (iframe is also possible with the selenium driver)
          • Don't know if feasible, but perhaps reject submission from specific server.
