Why is this comm such a target for spambots?

Another mark in the 'why we should move to dreamwidth' column tbh.

I care even less for DW than I care for spam tbh.

I don't understand comments like this. It came up before the FFA move too. Both are journaling sites with similar ways of commenting. I don't see how having something hosted there is any different than something hosted here.


Well for me the difference is I can track to infinity on LJ and to something pathetic like 25 on DW. That makes a HUGE difference.


You can track whole DW communities though. Not personal journals, but communities have the option of tracking all comments that get posted there.

That doesn't help me if I've already used my 25 notifications.

I've got 500 notifs on DW, so I'm good.

Lucky you. The original question was why most people don't want to move. The answer (or one answer) is that people with free accounts *don't* have 500, they have 25. And if they have 1000 on LJ, then DW is a big step down. It's easier to just put up with some spam.

I agree. I come here thinking 'awesome new comments' and it turns out its just spam. If we don't move to DW can we at least turn on captcha?

Seconding both of these - the hope & disappointment, and the idea of captcha.

I'll third that.
