Where is the spam?

Are they sold out?

Where else am I going to read about sketchy jeans deals and half copy and pasted nonsensical news articles? ;)


All kidding aside, thank you Elana. You've seemed to have solved the spam problem on SWB. This makes for a much more enjoyable experience reading all the threads that are actually on topic (mostly anyway). Best of all is that you've achieved this without compromising SWB's accessibility.

I for one am very glad that currently the closest thing resembling spam on SWB is mac's profile picture.
(because it depicts a piglet) :lol:

Don't get your hopes up.
The board does use spam filter lists to block known sources of spam.
But I'm sure around the end of November we will get lots of new bots, so they can advertise something you can waste money on for xmas
And so I would assume that a few of them manage to post before they get blocked again
