Hi,

I see we now have an article on independent escorts. Isn't there a way to stop this before it gets published? I'm thinking people might stop by and think that such articles do actually stay on the site.

Isn't it a better idea to let people sign up/make an account but prevent them from publishing anything until it's vetted? Wait, I thought that's how it was (with those first five articles). Now I'm confused :)

I agree, Mira. But I think that such spam is not unknown on Wizzley. Jo Harrington was insulted by someone whose commenton her article  was an advert for a psychiatric clinic. We all have to be vigilant against it and make the necessary complaints.

Thanks for your vigilance. :)
This is not only spam but also against our TOS. I've deleted the account.
When I get up in the morning, around 8 AM (CST - in Texas), the first thing I do, is check out our new submissions. That's when I catch this crap.
Don't worry too much, though.
The first 5 articles of a new member are blocked to Google bots until I approve them. So, no harm done to our site. :)

You were more than vigilant, Frank. You swooped in there and defended my mental well-being before I even saw it.  I was both insulted and complimented in the same stream.  Thank you for having my back. <3
