Blog = Members Market Place!?!


So I just wanted to read some nice Blog posts, I didn't want to read a ton of advertising junk. I didn't want to go on a "exile users for TOS violations" administrative binge. What is it about the Runboard "Blog" that seems to attract so much spam? Is there some kind of neon light that says "market your stuff here?" Do people think the Runboard TOS doesn't apply to the Blogs?
Maybe we should add another tab that says "Member Markets" so others won't have to wade through the mess created by Blog abuse.

Unfortunately, that's what we have to do when they get around the IP and other bans.

Spammers don't deserve a marketplace. They deserve to have their motherboards fried for trashing up the internet, but sadly, that isn't something we can do.

I have invented a few things, but that would be beyond my abilities. emoticon

There is a way to detect some bots, but I doubt even the mighty Thor could fry their motherboard.

I know it can be done but I also know it is illegal and seriously doubt that Thor would even consider it.

He might consider the creation of a "Marketing" tab allowing users to advertise goods and or services to their friends though.

The best part of that would be that the tab would be invisible to those who are not friends of the user (with the exception of Runboard Staff). So a spammer puts his/her stuff in the marketing tab, no one sees it or gets sucked into it...

Hmm I don't think it's a bad idea, as long as only friends could see it. But they could post in both or onot blogs.* And most of them are robot's right, so wouldn't take notice.*

*I think, but don't quote me!

How many people are actually using the blog as it was supposed to work? Do we have a lot of members posting there?

Because it the blog option is a spam magnet and not really relevant for true members, we might as well close it.
