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