Does IBM ever check these things?

Clearly not Volker, but those developerworks servers do get a huge number of spam comments, so no suprise that some of the less popular blogs/forums do not get cleaned out.

I know there are plans for a completely new IBM public blog service that will probably replace the existing developerworks blogs, so that will help matters. TBH, I wish they just used the DominoBlog template, Steve C did such a wonderful job on the spam detection that it just isn't an issue...

My employer Cloudmark has a product for social networking platforms , including blogs that takes care of those issues. Sorry, I could not resist, because Viagra spam is so old-school nowadays.

Cheers,

Sascha.

Maybe Pfizer is big IBM Customer, so it's a kind of cross-selling... ;-)

Are you suggesting they are behind all this business? ;-)

I can't promise that these will be removed, but I know that people are aware of the spam entering the dW forums - mostly through the NNTP server - and they're working on it. - Although I'm afraid that this may be a futile attempt considering the state of NNTP and the fact that even these groups are also available on other NNTP servers.

I think the current solution is the best compromise between a web-based and NNTP based forums which many people use and prefer, but I'm only a user of that system, so I'm not involved in any design decisions regarding this service.

FYI: I haven't heard anything about the blog comment spam, but I assume that - like anyone else who blogs - they're aware of this too, but given that they haven't removed this in over a month I'll open a ticket on Monday and ask them to look at it.

Guess it's time to put the parental-controls lock on for my kid's computers...
