Spam in the bread browser

Floyd,

It seams someone figured out how to use the personal blogs feature of your site to propagate spam with pictures that are making it into the bread browser. I first noticed it a few minutes ago, when I saw a picture of Selena Gomez selling insurance. I really don't think she authorised such use of her likeness, and I hope you will find a way to stop this before it grows. Once spammers find out you've made it easy for them, they all come crawling around and they are hard to get rid of at that point.

Just click on the "report this" tab, whenever you see spam. It will usually be removed in short order. Floyd does have to sleep now and then, however.

David, thanks for your post. I saw the same items a few minutes ago and marked them as spam. I see these types of spam occasionally but hopefully this will not become a big issue with this blog.

Didn't see the "report this" button, and this is the first time I've noticed any spam, so I wasn't sure what to do. Thanks for your help guys! I've seen websites completely overrun with spam, to the point that you couldn't enjoy participating on the site any more. I surely don't want to see that here.

It's completely full of spam at the moment, only one bread-related post.
