BlinkList Empowers Community to Help in Fight Against Spammers

As BlinkList continue to grow and gain more traction we are starting to see more and more "bad guys" try to abuse the system. While we believe that "people are basically good" there is always a few bad apples that try to ruin everything for the rest of us. However, we are committed to keep BlinkList spam free so that we can continue to have the freshest and most interesting discovery pages on the web.

For example, if you are trying to learn about "Ajax" you just might find far more interesting, fresh, and relevant content on BlinkList than anywhere else. However, that will only be the case if we can ensure that we keep the "bad guys" out and for that we need the help of our community.

To help us, you can now start to flag spammers by just going to the user page and clicking on "flag user as spammer."

Users that have been spammed will be reviewed and if they are clearly spamming BlinkList their accounts will be immediately deleted. No worries, if you are a good user and get flagged by accident then your account is safe since every account that is flagged is reviewed by our security team.

We hope that together we can ensure that BlinkList will continue to be one of the single best places to discover interesting new articles, sites, and resources online.
