I simply can’t believe how many spammers are allowed to simply sign up scads of new “users” every day!
These accounts clog up our resources and slow our site down as well as screw up any metrics we keep as far as users and projects posted.
Don’t believe me? Do this simple experiment:
On the top of the Home Page for LJ’s, click on the “Jocks” tab and choose “most recent”.
Simply look at the most recent two pages of “users”.
There are 35 “users” displayed per page and I looked at two pages worth this morning. I only found SIX actual users out of 70! All the rest wanted to sell you coupons or enlarge your genitals. Only one in ten accounts belong to actual people – and I’m quite sure it’s even worse on different days.
Can’t our site manager’s simply install a check to make sure you are a human before it allows you an account? It’s super easy to do!
As active members of this site, whom do we contact to request this?
