Today we introduced a new system to keep the scammers and fakes out of the FlingFinder community. It's a four-stage vermin filter:
1. We now manually review every new profile before it is activated. Our staff (i.e. me) are very skilled at spotting the fakes. OK, hardly revolutionary but very effective.
2. A user-based reporting system to weed out the occasional joker we may have missed in the first round. If you get a message you think might be spam or a scam, hit the "Report suspected spam" button and I'll look into it.
3. An automated spammer detection system, the details of which I can't divulge here for obvious reasons.
4. Verified profiles. To be really sure of a member's authenticity, check that their profile has at lest two levels of verification.
So, we'll see how it goes.
