Hey all,I'm sure those of you that are left here have noticed that we've had an influx of Russian / Cyrillic spam posts in recent weeks. I've deleted and reported over 50 journal usernames as spam / spambots. While the posts end up gone eventually, it still doesn't prevent them from popping up on your friend's pages until I can get to them, as sometimes I don't get on LJ for a day or two. I've been weighing options over the last couple weeks, and after deleting 8 posts today, I've decided to tighten up the restrictions here. Membership is now moderated (I have to approve all to join), and posting is also moderated (I have to approve all posts). After I'm relatively sure all the spambots have been weeded out here, I'll lift the moderated posting. Hopefully, this will eliminate all the problem posts here.Although this community isn't particularly active anymore (like most of LJ, at least for english users), I didn't want to shut the community down just yet. Hopefully, at least it won't be a spambot eyesore on your friend's pages anymore.
Thanks for that :)
This is a Russian Mail is trying to raise its prestige in the network. They write all the community related to Ebay and Amazon. Sorry for their stupidity.
Thanks for taking some action!
You still around?
I'm still here, though my LJ time these days is pretty much limited to about once or twice a week. (I generally only use LJ as a feed aggregator now and I typically only login to do community moderation / housekeeping).
