I agree, but realistically what's the alternative? I don't think there's an easy well for them to automate checking if an Amazon deal is from a marketplace seller or if it's sold by Amazon itself. And you can't just ban all Amazon deals. You can't even put all Amazon deals into moderation, really, because then we lose out on those deals that are there and sold out within a half hour. Particularly with Amazon, there seem to be quite a few time sensitive deals. That's part of what makes this such a complicated problem to fix. If there was a way to easily automate checking if it was a 3rd party deal, and force all of THOSE into moderation, that would definitely work, but I'm not aware of any easy way to do that.EverybodyKnows wrote: ↑Mar 29th, 2017 5:49 pmGreat, but considering that a number of accounts might be compromised from the database breach, what hope is there that spammers aren't hijacking old accounts to spam with? For all you know, they have a stockpile.
And considering most deal threads don't even last a day, that's plenty of time for someone to make a quick buck on this garbage code spam. I don't see the rationale in being OK with moderation being this slow.
