Baby-sitters Club Snark-fest!


[Tags|, ]

Apparently we are getting a lot of spam... I apologize for not catching it.

In the meantime, if you get any spam, please let the mods know instead of deleting so we can report it. You can actually report it to us in this thread for now.

EDIT 1: As a temporary measure (I hope), I have set a recaptcha requirement for all non-members who post comments. I hate to do this because I realize recaptcha can be problematic for some people (myself included, honestly), but hopefully it'll be very temporary I tested this one and it didn't work, so instead, all non-member comments will be screened for now, as a temporary measure. Please let me know if this causes anyone major problems.

One of my entries got spammed, but because guest comments were screened, they only showed up for me. I locked that entry and I'm afraid I've already deleted the comments. Thanks for taking care of this!

Can you email me the question? I'd say to PM it but I'm at work so email would be easier. You can just paste it, and tell me the person's name. bscsnarkmods@gmail.com. This way I can judge whether or not it seems inappropriate.

The latest post is another language and apparently an image that can't be found. What could it mean?

Sorry about that, I've been out all day. I deleted it. It's spam.

Help! Not spam.

I commented a few minutes ago on this snark: http://bsc-snark.livejournal.com/678330.html

The snarker is dealing with morning sickness and I included a link to some stuff you can get at Walmart that REALLY helps my nausea and got a comment back that my comment was marked as spam so won't show up. :(

Whenever you get a few minutes free, could you possibly fix it so my comment will be posted? It wouldn't even let me go back and try to fix the link or post without it.

Thank you! :)

Re: Help! Not spam.

Fixed that for you - you happened to catch me while I was doing my three hour evening email run! (And that's really sweet of you.)

I'm not sure I understand what this has to do with the post? Was this meant for a different one?

This might be a VERY stupid question but I want to ask it anyway. Is it okay to reply to very old snarks? The pros of LJ is that it's nothing like a message board and it's not like the stuff I'm replying to from 2008 will be bumped back up to the top but at the same time I don't want to pester any of the people that posted the original snarks--"Why the hell am I getting a notification for something I posted in 2008? ANNOYING!"

I'm not trolling in any of the stuff I've posted from that long ago. The main thing I wanted to do is go back and read/reply to a lot of stuff I didn't read originally or I was too shy to reply to when I first joined.

Anyway, I just wanted to ask about that. Thanks for the reply! :)

Not a stupid question at all! Go for it. :) If it were me I think I'd actually be quite giddy about someone finding something I posted in 2008.
