When I opened my account on share.naturalnews.com, I never received a confirmation e-mail, but I did get emails when mentioned or comments, that kind of thing.
I followed #newhere for awhile and found that my pod seems to cater to advertisers and spammers. So many, in fact, that reporting their posts was becoming a full time job and nothing seemed to actually be done about it. I wonder if other pods may stop federating with share.naturalnews.com if they keep allowing these advertisers to create accounts and spam. I’m thinking about migrating to a new pod for fear that mine will get a bad reputation for allowing advertisers and spammers.
Aren’t new accounts supposed to be verified? How can I help my podmin besides reporting these posts?
