Blog comment spam

By
Education & Training with ActiveRain

This issue has been brought up by several members who have been tired of other members leaving short, non informative comments on their blog posts in what appears to be an attempt to gain points.  The has a detramental effect of cluttering up the blog postings and also causes the poster to receive unwanted comment notifications if they have email notification turned on.  This is the definition of spam...

As we've said before points are meant as a way to reward members for taking actions that help grow the community.  With that in mind we identified two members who were the cause of almost all (90%) of this comment spam.  They have recieved a significant point penalty and have also been sent warnings to clean up their act or face removal from the system.

Hmmm, looks like I got here after the all of the hullabaloo.  I agree with Jaquelyn's comment above about making changes in the point system retroactive to put everything on a fairer ground.

I think that it would get rid of all of the spam comments by giving individual points to members based on the quality of the comments left. That should help clean up the house :)
