The level of spam diaries has once again become ridiculous. This means that for now I have, once again, blocked the new user signup process.
I have in mind a possible solution, but it will require co-operation from you guys. So I'm writing to see if you think it's a viable alternative.
My thoughts are that I will update the software to provide a one stop button to DELETE a spam diary, for a number of privileged, long term diary users. If I implement this, anyone who has the flag set on their account will gain (after logging in) a link at the top of every page the clicking of which will simply remove that diary. The problem of course would be if you clicked on it when visiting someone's diary you didn't really intend to delete 🙂
Would people be willing to assist in the indiscriminate blitzing of spam diaries if they had an easy to use link at the top of the page? If you've been a diary user for some time and I can be reasonably sure you won't abuse the power, I'll be happy to implement something like this.
Let me know your thoughts.
