SPAM Points - the easiest points on ActiveRain

By
Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

Ugg SPAM

Report Spam when you see it on your blog, another members blog, an abandoned blog.  Don't worry about whether they could or will report the spam themselves....

Just do it.

It is so easy to do. 

*** You get points... there is a bounty on SPAM***
 

Click "Report a Concern" at the bottom right on the comment.  It is just left of the time the comment is left if you hover there it will appear.  ActiveRain does the rest. Sometimes but not always  a pop up opens up so it takes a second click. 

Report Spam Pop Up

"Are you sure you want to report this comment?"

You betcha.

The pop up  tells you "Innapropriate content includes spam, third-party advertisements in comments, hate speech and slander."

Click OK if it is "Innapropriate content."   Two clicks for 10 points? What could be easier?

Way easier than thinking up a comment and typing it in for 25 points.... or even cutting and pasting in a comment for 25 Points. 

Way easier than writing original content for your blog for 225 Points.

I think I have over 300 points here for reporting over 30 SPAM comments.

We don't get a lot of SPAM on ActiveRain but it is getting worse ActiveRain Easter Egg Hunt

Use this tool to get SPAM removed and get some points. 

It is also therapeutic....

7-17-2009 EDIT  On your blog do not delete, report!!!

Jeremy Re-Blogged Bob's post Would you like a side of spam with that...

ActiveRain says don't just delete

Bob says it in the comments on his blog..."DON'T JUST DELETE"

Jenny I am on a computer now where I don't see it either.  I am at the office, signed in on an office computer with some version of IE....  I wonder how people who don't see it because of their comnputer should handle this?  Hopefully they have friends who have commmented on the post who can report it as a concern. 

Maybe leave a comment on Bob's post on the dashboard?

oooh ick typo and I don't get an edit button either.

Jenny I mean ask Bob or others how to handle it if you do not see the links to report spam... I know they are inundated know with support requests. When I get back on my computer I would be happy to report them, if you can leave a link to the posts.

I am sure you will see it since it's featured but just in case... Jeremy's post Would you like bonus points?Send me spam & get points

Email to Jeremy... this is not 10 points for flagging a spam comment.

1.  There are fake memberships ON AR

2.  There is a  big bounty on them if you want points. Not the 10 points you get for the "Report a concern" on a comment.

 

Jeremy's post is entertaining... how to tell a spam member

Thanks for this, I have been getting more "active" on A|R and I'm having fun with finding ways to gain points. It's a little like a game.
