Hi, thanks everyone for pointing this stuff out. You can also use the "report post" function.

Jef you have editor permissions, so you can delete spam posts. Do you also have the ability to ban or delete users?

I can delete posts but I only do it on news articles, otherwise I just break the links so that it's obvious it's a spammer. I can't ban or delete users as far as I know.

same cunt, still at it. Maybe it's just a human who can't spell but is really good at extremely basic maths problems.

new poster posted two identical tracts full of gems like this:

Quote:
Fact: With a 90% return rate with their prisons most either forced into|
| their gay agenda or convert to Muslim. (PRI)

It's clearly a c&p from a long and crazy website somewhere and is spamming some book on Amazon. Not banned the poster but it might need to be done.

He keeps posing a bunch of Crimethinkie crap into the library. No source or anything. Wouldn't say it's commercial, but it's definitely some form of spam.

this one's particularly amazing:

I too reach for my revolver when I hear the word art.

technical question: does spam have to be commercial to be considered undesirable?

Holy Marx in a bun that's a horribly designed website! I take it back, any move allowing people to read these texts without having to go over there to get them is fine by me.
