Spam Reporting - TBT Post
Read SoundNFury 's reply to my comment in his post about the Sweeble app and I remembered the spam reporting done in the other site. Was reading through some old emails and stumbled upon a couple of emails I sent to the bubble ooze site about spammers. I was fairly surprised that I wrote a lot of emails to them and reported at least 100 spammers. Those accounts that either write invitations and advertisements for their own sites or businesses ('My aunt's daughter's cousins' black Labrador makes $365 an hour. Try it for yourself.' - type of comments) or those that just copy-paste comments with no regards for the subject of the post were most of the accounts that I reported. There were also a couple of accounts that plagiarized posts that I reported. Most of the reply that I got from the site was the generic automated response commending my efforts and ensuring that the emails I sent will be acted upon.
Guess what? The site really didn't do much when it came to dealing with these spammers and violators.
At first, I thought that with all the glitches, errors, and maintenance going on at that time, it was understandable that the persons responsible for reviewing the reported accounts in question will take a longer time in checking and verifying the claims against these accounts. Well, wasn't really the case. I think for every one spammer account that the site closed another ten was made to take up its place.The support from the community was there but the actual effort from the site was sorely lacking. In the end the spammers and violators won out and the site has stopped paying its honest members.
We should really be thankful for the screening process that Persona Paper has in place. In my mind, that is one of the most effective ways that this site has against spammers and violators.
