So you've been getting hammered. While we very much appreciate all of the hard work everyone has been doing to keep things clean, we feel like we should be making it easier for you.
Hence, effective immediately, the threshold of spam / abuse flags required for a post to be automatically deleted has been cut in half. This also has the benefit of more quickly training our spam system since that's an event that the system learns from. We've also made tweaks to deal an instant blocking weight within the system for every instance of a post being spam-flag deleted.
Or, less technically, when three of you spam-flag a post:
- It's instantly deleted.
- The originating host (and possibly nearby networks) are automatically blocked from posting.
We're going to leave this in place for at least the next 7 - 10 days. Thanks again for everything you do, and know we're watching and here to help.
