How come when I make a post it frequently gets flagged as spam by your robot, yet your robot is completely incapable of spotting 500 posts from Indian Movers and Chinese Laser Cutting Machine and Diploma Mill Specialists?

It's time to add capture to *ALL* posting.

Hi Aeomer,

Thanks for the concern! The spam attack today was totally massive and really sucks for all. 

We are using Akismet (Rails Gem) to report and filter the spam. Since there was a failure here we are making some moves to mitigate this.

- We are looking at the Akismet configuration to make sure the right data is being sent back to Akismet.

- We contacted the Akismet team to verify any changes that need to be made.

- We added some static filters to help catch the more obvious attempts.

We'll keep jammin on this today to make the filtering more robust and update here.
