Its no secret that were being bombarded with spam, especially over the past week. Several of you have commented on it here on the site, and others are approaching me about it here at SMX West. Im hopeful well talk about the spam issue internally when things settle down after the conference.
IN THE MEANTIME, would you please help police the site while were here in Santa Clara and unable to watch Sphinn as closely as we do normally?
Of the 16 accounts I killed tonight, probably half were spam posts that were submitted here 4-5 hours ago (or more). Yet, they were only tagged as spam by 0-1 other users. Meanwhile, a couple dozen people had submitted their own material and/or posted comments elsewhere on the site. So, our regular users are using the site, but ignoring the spam in "Whats New."
Please use the tools available to you to help police the site, esp. this week. If you see something thats spam, push the SPAM link/button. When 5 of you do that, the post will go away automatically, and the site will be more enjoyable for all.
Thanks for reading....
