Wish we Could Delete Rampant Spam Comments on Articles!
I have been constantly flagging spam comments on my articles. I seem to remember a time when we could delete them ourselves, but don't see that option anymore. For all it is worth I am flagging them.
It seems that almost all the posts these days are spam
I flagged something here in the forum on June 2nd and it's still there. I'm not sure if clicking the flag icon more than once is going to do anything.
Sadly, we are not notified of our comments, either, unless I have missed something. As a result, we would have to go through all our articles every day (a nearly impossible task) to catch all the spam. If the spam cannot be removed by us, however, I guess I am better off not knowing that most of it is spam.
At this point, I find myself wondering "what difference does it make" when it comes to anything related to Infobarrel. I only log on here occasionally these days.
I still get notified about comments in my email, I think that is in the settings somewhere... I am getting a lot of notifications of comments and they are total spam. Its too bad this site is not being monitored.
I still get notifications for comments. It's frustrating not to be able to delete the spam anymore. At this point, I'm just shrugging my shoulders when I read the email, sending it to my trash bin and moving on. Sometimes I'll still report them but feeling more and more indifferent :(
I used to get notifications, but they stopped a year or so ago. I started to update my settings to get notifications again, but it sounds like it would be pointless. I'll wait to see if anything improves here and, if it does, I'll update my settings, then.
Thanks for letting me know that some people are still getting notifications. At least something works here!
I stopped getting notifications years and years ago. It makes me sad that this place is left to wither away, but I have moved forward. It's nice to see familiar faces in the forums, but for all the wrong reasons!
Totally agree mommyx3... I still check here every couple of days, out of habit or a glimmer of hope that things might change. I still make money from Amazon here, although I have moved on with my own sites.
I still make Amazon sales as well. While I still make payout each month, it is nothing close to what I used to earn. I removed many articles and have or will place them elsewhere as time permits. The way to earn money is to have your own sites.
Wow - this is disappointing. InfoBarrel was highly recommended by a podcast I listen to. Sounds like it has gone downhill recently...?
I still get notified of comments on my articles.
They are almost always spam advertising. I too seem to remember when we could delete this inappropriate rubbish ourselves.
Why can't we have that facility back?
It looks as if Admin has been visiting - spam seems to have been removed, though it would be great if we didn't have to wait for them, wouldn't it?
Hi Jeff, I know it's been a while since you made this comment, but if you're still around I'm curious as to which podcast recommended InfoBarrel?
