Today's Target: Goals

There’s a NWatchman out there flagging goals for deletion who has no understanding of how the system works. They have been flagging some goals today with the following comment:

“goal created by spammers for spam. every user is a spammer under this goal. delete the goal and loads of spam will de deleted,”

Getting a goal banned by the system does not affect the users who have the goal, nor the entries underneath the goal. It just keeps new users from adding the goal. The goal still exists, as does the entries underneath it. It doesn’t remove the goal from users’ lists who already have the goal. And those users can continue to make entries under the goal.

If you want to get rid of the spammers, you have to flag their accounts and get them banned from the system. Banning a goal doesn’t do it.



Also worth mentioning

is that someone on NW has been writing something about the goals creating “avenues” for spammers to get onto the site. That’s not true. If you delete one of their regular goals, they will just create another. Or use other existing goals. I actually prefer the spammer using the “name” goals- at least they’re easier to recognize that way, and they aren’t using popular goals like “travel the world” to fill up with spam.

Everyone who adopts a goal before it gets banned will still have it on their list. Now if you get banned yourself, that’s a different story.

If you need help adding a “banned” goal to your list after it’s been “banned”, let me know. I’ve added quite a few “banned” goals and written entries on them after they were “banned”.

Todd Schoonover has gotten 15 cheers on this entry.
