02:48 pm - spam posts
Hey everyone. Even though this group isn't the most active, I am trying to stay on top of all of the spam posts to make sure your friends lists are clear of random russian (?) spam and porn posts. So if you see some up, please be a bit patient and know that I'm deleting them as soon as I see them. In the meantime, try not to encourage them by clicking on the links.

you're absolutely right. It was unfair of me to make that kind of generalization and I apologize if it offended anyone.

I'm fairly certain that the posts that were posted in this group were spam (user has no entries, no friends, removes comments options on posts, images are totally unrelated, etc.) and at least one of them was obviously porn. However, that definitely doesn't mean that I should assume that russian = spam. I'll be more conscious of that in the future and delete only those that are very obviously spam/porn.

- there shouldn't be much surprise - russian segment of LJ is the biggest. In Russia LJ is more popular then in the USA. But 7 years ago thet was quite different - american sector was the biggest and I received american porn spam.
