I just need to make a quick comment to all who are helping with the spam diary removal effort, after a small accident today. I know this didn't happen on purpose and is purely a slip but I'm keen to try to ensure we don't have any false positives so here's a little of how I decide if a diary is a spam diary or not;
The biggest clue is in the customization. Spam diaries almost invariably have ZERO customization (one bonus to a convoluted customizer that takes time to learn, spammers don't spend time)
Age of diary. Spam diaries are all relatively new and with few entries. If there are a number of entries, many will be on the same day.
Most spam diaries appear to be in English. DD has a high percentage of HongKong diarists who write in Chinese, these are not necessarily spammers.
Spam diaries often have names that just look out of place, either a collection of just letters and numbers or FirstLastname/FirstLastNameXX.
Please have a look around the diary before committing it as a spammer unless you can honestly see from the first entry screen that it's definitely a spammer. As I said, at this point in time, the biggest giveaway is the lack of customization. (Not that all non-customized diaries are spam, they might just be new – then you need to look at content too :-))
Anyway, no lasting damage done, I restored the accidental spam deletion and everyone should be happy again 🙂
