    @seema Forwarded this to Curse, that is something that we don't want to see.

    Forwarding it to the team. This is certainly problematic. I'll see what we can do.

    EDIT: Went through and did some spam training - it should help bring the disgusting amount getting through down a bit. Sorry for that guys, seems like they're getting smarter every day.

    Long term, we're working on some better moderator tools to help us catch that stuff sooner.

    Implemented in the past, and in certain locations already. The real issue here is just not enough hands to mark spam correctly in a timely fashion. Our system learns fast and a few clicks is generally all it takes to clear it up - but we absolutely hate inconveniencing our end users and hate false positives even more.

    It's a balancing act that we continuously work on :D

    I'd rather have a >5% chance to click the pictures of the store fronts than to have a completely unusable issues system.

    Fair, and if you were the only person that would be fine. Unfortunately, any change we make to the process means that we get flooded with complaints.

    I'd rather fix our lacking spam handling system then implement a new hurdle to irritate the community. 1 vs many situation. And in this case, many is hundreds of thousands of users as the system is shared across communities.

    Just circles back around to that balancing act :]

    Thanks for the heads up! I've gone ahead and taught the filter about that stuff.
