I Have Stopped Bothering With Reading Stories

I am tired of having to plow through dozens of ads selling products and services, before getting to an actual story. There are far too many people who are opening accounts just so they can spam us. No other activity, just a new account to use to advertize their wares.

Is there a way EP can get on top of this problem? I flagged one new member who posted 10 ads in less than 5 minutes, only to come back and see that there are 3 more people who are using EP as place to advertise.

Start flagging these people, EPeeps....

Thanks for sharing and encouraging your fellow EPeeps to flag. We're able to review most flags within 24 hours.

Community flags play a big role in helping us keep EP a safe and positive space.

On the back end we are working to improve our automated filters as well to prevent ads/spam from being posted, but no automated system is perfect and flagging with always be invaluable.

Thanks, I appreciate the rapid response.
