Weary Willie, I’m not sure a spam filter would be able to take out this junk. Currently, there is not so much junk that the WB editor/mgr couldn’t delete by hand.
Would be nice if the WB mgr gave each writer the tools to delete spam in their threads. Spammers are definitely getting worse.
Would be nice to hear something from WB mgmt on this. I’ve tried to contact them but for some reason my emails can’t get thru.
I’ve had a similar experience. I’ve been unable to post articles for some time due. I’d be willing to change my user name/password, but nothing has worked, and no one has replied to my various e-mails, although Adam Drucker and C&J offered assistance and ideas…
Can be frustrating. I could contact WB via email a month or so ago and now I can’t and have no reason why.
But, it would seem the spam thing should be the responsibility of either WB or Movable Type Publishing. I assume WB mgrs are deleting spam that shows up in threads but that’s after the fact.
I suggest that someone who can contact WB do so and request that WB inform the writer’s as to WB policy via spam and what the writer’s should do, if anything, about spam in threads.
This site barely even works at all any more.
I can remove the spam from my entries using Moveable type. I have to check it every day to keep it clean. It’s a bother, but I’m willing to do it to keep my entries clean.
Seems like a 1st amendment issue. You can’t go into a church and start preaching some political idea. You can’t walk into congress or a CEO board meeting and start ranting about religion, porn or some such.
WB has a purposeful intent just like a church or a board meeting. Writer’s post and people are solicited to debate and comment, but within reason.
So, if a spammer can be identified why can’t they lose their license (web privilege) for some period of time. I.E. the computer using the offending web name can’t apply for a new name for some period of time.
Curious if WB is getting spammed more than other sites. Is it just globalism run amuk or an attack by some political agenga?
If it’s the latter we should ‘shoot them all and let God sort it out’.

What, then, are the characteristics that make an MSA likely to spawn successful neologisms? It’s well established that Coach Outlet Twitter has a higher rate of adoption among African Americans than other ethnic groups, and so it perhaps isn’t Coach Outlet surprising that they now find that innovation centres, as well as being highly populated, have a higher proportion of Coach Outlet African Americans, and that similarity of racial demographic can make two urban centres more likely to be linked Coach Outlet in the influence network. There is a long history of adoption of African American slang (cool, dig, rip off) in mainstream Coach Outlet Online US culture, so these findings agree with what we might expect.Not only has he been sacked, but he now risks losing his Coach Factory Online home as well, situated almost next door to his former workplace, the Papal apartments on the top floor of the Coach Outlet Online Apostolic Palace.The Gendarmerie explained that this was done to prevent Gabriele from harming himself, Coach Outlet and that he himself had asked for the light to be left on at night and was given a sleeping mask.

The Coach Outlet Store hope among Western countries is that the new coalition, called the National Coalition of Coach Factory Online Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, can give local opposition councils the Coach Outlet Store Online legitimacy to bring fighters under their Coach Outlet Store Online en supposant que mal.
