Re: Blocking mail from bad places

MySpace and blog spamming can be cured instantly if users required all public posts to be moderated rather than automatically accepted.
Many people see blogging as analogous to newspaper publishing. If you want to be a newspaper publisher, you also need an editor to review content printed in your paper (posted to your blog). I've posted to the Washington Post blogs and their on-line folks read and review each and every post to keep out the spam. Sure it's expensive, but that's the price for quality forums. If you leave a blank canvas for all to use, the taggers will come.
As for YouTube spamming...well, that's like classified advertising. Some people will pay for big bold spots and some people can only afford a two-line ad. If you want to give everyone the opportunity to post for free, you have to accept the garbage. Do you want a content editor to ensure policy compliance or let it be a open to all who come?
