Overwhelmed by spam!

  • Author

    Are you (WordPress folks) aware of the overwhelming amount of spam that has been published on WordPress recently? For example, on the “Environment” page, there has been more spam than real articles. It’s out of control and is ruining the WordPress experience. Please help.
    Thank you.

    I posted about this earlier today and received the following reply (below). I’ve been finding the same this last week and it’s very frustrating and offputting. I hope they can fix it soon. I don’t know why anyone thinks they’ll generate business by inserting a heap of fake posts about credit cards into topic listings like environment or health!

    The Terms of Service group catches many of the spam blogs – but not all of them – you can help to clean up the neighborhood by reporting the spam – mouse over the blog name on the left side of the upper Navigation bar and click on “Report This Content” and follow the instructions – put a note on what you found –

    if you report the blog that helps the TOS group to understand what their filters and such are missing
