Caleb, we have been under major attack from such spam since mid April and delete them as fast as we can.
"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
I like ads that are informative, etc., but recently there have been more and more ads that have shown up as blogs.
I don't know the solution, but step one might be a moderator posting a requirement that the blog postings relate to politics in some way, and also take onto themselves the power to delete ads -- I mean "blogs" -- that are not based on politics, on the planet, etc.
Any thots on this?
