and now the spam has morphed into spam porn links.

Yeah, the time to do something was 6 months ago.

That's not new. I've been uncovering those since like..... December?

Yeah, it seems to pop up every so often. It's cam girl ads mostly.

Links, people!   LINKS!    :icon_scratch:

The move towards other social networks (mostly Facebook) killed many of the boards I was in. This happened, I believe, because FB turned out to be the first real global social network - Orkut was once the defacto SN here in Brasil, but is dead by now. Beebo (not sure if the name is correctly spelled) was huge in the UK. And so on...

But none was so hegemonic as FB is today. IMO, that is bad. Specially when we talk about communities. Even when I'm participating in FB discussions on groups or posts neither of them seem to be a unity: They all look like comment boxes. It is all really vain and ephemeral, which, I think, has to do with the way FB organize things, where almost everything  get lost really quickly and you barely take part of things unless you are all day long there.

So I do believe the rise of these other tools helped people move away from here.

I assembled this team for purposes of a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen thing, but in reading this thread it occurs to me they're all highly bangable. Yeah, even Spider Jerusalem.
