Spam and spammers

There are 2 ways to look at spammers; true, they are annoying and cause a great deal of unnecessary aggravation; on the other hand, if your site is attracting spammers, you must be doing something right- so we’ll take the spammers’ presence on Toluna as a compliment on one hand, while the other hand brushes them away.

Over the last few days we have seen a serious increase in spam on Toluna; you may have encountered one or more of the following:

Gibberish opinions and polls

Repeated opinions on different topics

Duplicate polls

We are well aware of this problem and will be taking steps to keep spammers of Toluna. Needless to say, members who are responsible for spam will have their points revoked and risk having their accounts deleted. You can help us find spammers by giving them a negative “useful” rating:

If you come across an opinion that you think shouldn’t be there, simply click “no”; this will greatly improve our ability to locate spammers and get rid of them. Thanks!
