Come on Coastal Courier, you need to do something about all this spam!! the first 150 plus blogs are nothing but spam about watching football and boxing!! There are people like myself enjoy reading blogs, but when it comes to this kind of crap I just want to delete your website. You must have someone there ( a computer geniuse or geek) that can stop this kind of nonsense!! This has been going on for way too long and should have been fixed long time ago!

Yes I just saw it. This is getting so annoying! Just wish C.C. can do something about it!

They need to "prescreen" the new accounts before allowing them to post - if that's possible. Especially on weekends - when the mad spammer hits the most - it should stop them in their tracks.

I've suggested this before - online and in private emails - but they haven't done it. Must be too labor intensive or some other issue that makes this a poor choice for them.

It would be nice if they figured out a way to do it soon, though.

From what I remember of their "signing up" process it should be an easy add-on to the program to have new members first "blog" wait in moderation for approval. Then they need to check email/IP addresses and block them from signing up, because I'm willing to bet that most of the spam is coming from one or two people.

Yes - I think you're probably right. They tried to stop it by blocking keywords but it looks like a queue is needed.

sebekm commented on Sunday, Nov 13, 2011 at 19:04 PM

...and they just MIGHT have done it this afternoon. We'll know by the absence of spam.

sebekm commented on Sunday, Nov 13, 2011 at 19:38 PM

....nope....there they go again....

blocking IPs isn't really that effective. There are ways to change your IP and with the use of proxies, you can get an IP address from anywhere in the world. I think a probationary period for new accounts is the best solution.

Well CC looks like the spam figured out how to get back to posting their b.s. again. Hopefully you can figure something else out. Do have to say though it was nice for awhile not having to see all the spam.
