Omg people, now the advertisers are spamming out forums!!! We must put an end to this rampage of idle and repetitive forums and annoying advertisers!!! It must end! I'm at a loss for ideas on how to keep them off the blogs besides just ignoring them, but we can keep the forums active, and drown out their spam.

Most of our communication is direct contact with eachother with messages and stuff, so why not make a bunch of posts to find out the things we have in common and actually MAKE friends instead of just adding as many strangers as possible? This is a drawing site, but the posts don't necessarily have to be drawing-related. This site should have a non-drawing related forum...

*Starts Revolution* So who's with me?!

Oh look. Seems like spam's gone.

I'm with you!  I found out there's a new spam on the forum, though. :/

It's because the site wants to specify if your a computer advertister/spammer. I think drawingnow should have one of those. If you don't get what I mean, then here's an example...

You know how you receive a lot of ad emails in you, er, email? That's spamming, but a real person isn't really sending you those.



Scroll down until you see "Blog, wiki, and guestbook".

"Blog spam or "blam" for short, is spamming on weblogs. In 2003, this type of spam took advantage of the open nature of comments in the blogging software Movable Type by repeatedly placing comments to various blog posts that provided nothing more than a link to the spammer's commercial web site. Similar attacks are often performed against wikis and guestbooks, both of which accept user contributions."

Any deja vu going on?



So... who agrees?! I mean, this is a drawing site, right?

Yeah, this site should definitely have one of those. Too bad the admins are rarely on. This site should have mini mods too, so they can delete spam when it pops up and ban users.

The spam mostly appears in the blogs and blog comments. I don't mind advertisements as much since they're what's keeping this site running, but it'd also be nice without them.
