This is a quick update to the spam situation that I'm wrestling with here on FamilyTreeCircles.
As mentioned a few days ago in this post, Spam Spam Spam Spam, I put in some checks to prevent blatant spam from getting posted to FamilyTreeCircles.
In just 4 days, 535 messages that appear to be spam were put into the manual review queue.
I've reviewed all of them (fun, fun) and only one well-meaning, legitimate user was negatively impacted. His posts have been approved. The rest deleted (that part really was fun).
I have to say that I'm pretty pleased with the results so far. I will be refining the algorithms to reduce the false positives going forward.
Here's to a spam-free FamilyTreeCircles.
