Local paper website offers news you can use, and abuse

15 March 2010

As the newspaper industry collapses in the face of digital media, it seems owners are desperate to try anything to increase revenue. That, or people in the North East of England are a bunch of bong-eyed sallow-skinned drug gobblers; of the 80 threads on the Sunday Sun forums, over half are pill-peddling spam posts. Moderators, hello?

Bitterwallet - Sunday Sun drug offers

    Moderators? Those posts are probably BY moderators!

    @stevie ...or, given it's nearly midday and still there on the site of a regional newspaper, it doesn't.

    My local rag, much loved for its spelling mistakes and misinformation, having said that it does have a very good online family notices so you can keep abreast of who has croaked it while you are on holiday, wouldent want to miss a good funeral and piss up.

    has Stevie got lost on his way to HYS?

    I can relate on this. I had built an online forum once and suffer the same troubles from the spammers. If we need to get rid of those irritating spams - we need to have active moderators and an effective forum script.

    Perhaps like BW they also apply a liberal moderation policy (or similarly simply cant be arsed) Quick glance at the About page here found these offtopic related tidbits; # Posted by Michael George | December 20th, 2009 at 4:56 p Screw you Dale you cum guzzling prick! Why don’t you pop over and let me shit down your throat, I’m sure you’d enjoy that! # Posted by F. Finger | December 22nd, 2009 at 1:00 pm I love the willy, want to come round mine and we could play excrement based activities. # Posted by F. Finger | December 25th, 2009 at 8:29 pm PS: Can I come round to suck your cock Michael George? hehehehe

    Related sidebar; did you guys know that you appear in Google's top 10 when searching for "cum guzzling prick". If the editorials fail then guess you could always convert to a gay love site.

    A window on a day in the life of Sceptic's internet searchs.
  • PaulH
    @Sceptic ...Fail
  • Nobby
    That's fine, but what if you want gay activities with no strings? Google for "unconditional cum guzzling prick" and Bitterwallet is No. 1 :-D
  • Sceptic
    @ Paul - hardly fail, but admittedly tenuously related to the topic of spam on websites. Shame it missed your interests. Instead, and to quote avid BW reader Michael George above, why don’t you pop over [...] @ Nobby - thats the spirit! ;)
  • Paul S.
    Number 1 and proud of it, bitches. We paid some SEO wanker millions to get to the top of that search.
  • Paul S.
    It's still there, by the way. That's a full day. Punters seem to be reading it, too.
  • Nobby
    Thing is, if you spam so much so that there is no news, people are just not going to read it. If they allowed local stories to be on there by putting up less spam, then the locals would read it. Then a bit more care about how they write their spam - eg. Cheap for Newcastle residents approved by council, click here for more info - then they would get better sales.

    Its spambots, all they have to do is change the Captcha images. They use OCR to automatically register by subtracting the standard captcha images from the captcha code displayed... simples!
