I saw too many good Wiki closed because of spam... :-(
What was a good idea/concept has been ruined by greedy people, once again.
I reckon that sometime I see a typo or want to make a small remark on a
software or a page, so I search an e-mail address or a forum. In the
later case, if I need to log in, in 9 cases out of 10, I just go away...
On the other hand, without good moderators or filters, spam is a plague.
I saw a forum with 3 or 4 sections, all of them almost empty except
one... which was filled of spam.
And I started to make a blog, with s9y which doesn't display the number
of comments in the main page. When I had a look at the database, I saw I
had actually lot of comments. A quick scan shown that I could just do
'truncate table'... While the blog software blocked lot of spam attacks
Hey, I even saw in a forum a topic advertizing for a service (located in
Russian, IIRC) of human operators to post spam on forums...
