New feature “report as spam”

Our website is getting bigger and bigger every day which is great! There is only one downside: we are now attracting more spammers. We noticed an increase of spam comments across the whole page. To get rid of them we need your help!

To nip things in the bud we have a new feature for you which you may have noticed it already: below each comment you now find the phrase “report as spam”. So what happens when you click it? Your default email program is going to create a new email addressed to spam@lomography.com containing the comment you want to report. You only have to click “send” and we are going to delete the spam comment.

So help us to keep Lomography.com a spam-free community! Thank you all!

    @u-t-e the next time just write a message to spam@lomography.com with a link to the article / photo. You can report every spam not only the one on your page.

    The next helpful thing would be to allow people to remove posts by others on their homes. All that spam is sooo unpoetic ;)

    Hey, I have a question, can't we delete even our own comments? For example if you misspelled anything or forgot to tag someone. That would be so helpful :|
