Sticky Mod Post 
6th-Jan-2017 11:51 am - [sticky post]
For ease of reporting spam and other abuse, please let me know of it via this sticky post, which I will also edit as needed. For the time being, this community will remain on [E.T.A. partially] moderated status due to a rash of spam posts today (January 6th, 2017).

Update January 8th, 2017: For the time being, I have removed YouTube from this community's links white list. If this works as it should, all posts with a YT link should enter the moderation queue.

Update January 21st, 2017: I try to check in here at least once a day, but there are times when I can't. Your reporting of spam entries helps enormously, so kudos and please keep it up!

Tonight I deleted 2 suspicious comments from this post and unspammed one on another post. Suspicious comments hide better than spam posts, so if you become aware of those and need a mod's help, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Happy fic-seeking,
Blackbird Song

Hi Blackbird Song!

I just wanted to let you know whenever one of the links for a new post are sent out with email, I get a note from LiveJournal stating this journal has been suspended when I click on the post link.

Interesting. I assume you mean the spam-posting accounts? I know that those showed up as suspended when I cleared out suspended spammers from the members list.

In hindsight, I'm surprised that I could see their posts, though that may be because I'm the current owner of this comm.

I saw a post earlier today that was a video for something that had the word "Toys" in the title, so if that was one of the spam posts, it wasn't only visible to you because you're the admin.

Thanks for protecting us from spam!

Yes, there were three of those from two different accounts, both of which have been suspended. I deleted all of them.

You're very welcome! Thank you for telling me that you saw that post. It's very helpful!

I don't think so because some of the posts I was able to access before. I literally thought this journal got deleted because it says in the message that LiveJournal suspended the journal. If you are accessing posts through the site your fine, but any notifications I get or have gotten months before come up as the journal being suspended.

This is very interesting and a little scary. I've had no problem accessing the community, nor did I get any notifications of it being suspended. Very strange.

Thank you for reporting this to me! I'll try to do some digging whenever I have a spare moment. In the meantime, I plan to be more present here than I have been, in hopes of catching problems early. Maybe I'll even get some time to read fic! ;)
