Problems with spam - disable links - Ramireo - 05-05-2018

Hello,

I have a problem with unnecessary data on my website. The problem is that I get a lot of users pasting external links that basically  go like that:
www.some-link-here.whatever
That "whatever" ending links to some other language websites which are confusing for anybody who wants to use my forum. However I dont want to disable all the links from being pasted - some of them have interesting content.

1. How can I disable that specific extension (like .cn or .com) links from being pasted and if that ".whatever" extension is discovered the entire link is removed?

Best Regards
Ramireo

You need a quick little plugin, if you are not considering core edits ...
