    Default Spam in article comments

    The "make money on the internet" spam that appears to be largely Indian in origin is out of hand in the article comments, often outnumbering the actual comments themselves. Are there plans to deal with this?

    I realize the article comments are Facebook-powered, because when I click "Mark as spam", I am asked to log in to Facebook. But surely there must be some way to automatically filter this junk, rather than rely on people to do it manually.

    The forums don't have any involvement with that sort of thing on the main site, you'd have to contact them directly.

    Isn't that what the administrators say about everything? That's the ONLY answer I've ever seen

    If it's anything to do with the main site, yes that is what you will hear us say. Why? Because it is the way things are.
    The Forum Admins and Mods work only on the forums. We have no involvement on the main CBR site.

    Ask them to remove the 10 character limit and you'll get an answer

    'Cuz maybe that's the correct answer?

    If the people who supervise the Forum section don't have anything to do with running the main site, what are the people who supervise just the Forum section suppose to do about it?
