Default Spammers on the front page?

OK, I saw the new Newz story on WI's front page, the one about all the darts. (Cool, by the way )

I was posting a comment something along the lines of "Oh, cool, I'd like to have that." and I noticed after it posted and I was scrolling up to go back to the forum, and was skimming over the posts, that there were a ffew spammers. like one person put there name as hhhhhhhhhh and just typed jibberish. What and where does spamming get you?!?!

I didn't notice that. Maybe you should tell Justion or one of the mods about it?

I have noticed that before.

I was going to say something, but I never got around to it.

Probably no where. If you see scamming simply report it to an admin or mod.

Unfortunately, due to the fact you do not need to register to post a comment on the front page, it's always going to happen. It is not just Webkinz Insider, it has become sort of an "internet game" where everyone races to see who can get the first post on an article of interest. (Thus getting their 15 seconds of internet fame).

The most you could do is possibly report it, but personally, I wouldn't worry to much about it. Better to be "spamming" out front on the article then in on our forums... lol - Takes a ton of work to discourage anyone from doing that.

But you do bring up a good point, thank you.

Yes, people do that.

Why?
I don't know.

I think they just post to get
First post
Second post
Third post
Top 5
Top 10

I think it is spam and it should be deleted.

Everyone made good points, thanks for contributing. I wanted to zoom in on MissG's post, everyone wants their '15 secs of fame' I also agree, better there than on the forums. Now THAT would be a problem. Thanks, everyone. Mod can delete/close/whatever really cool magic you can preform now Thanks, guys.
