There's too much spam in the OSM Diaries

We need report buttons and more admins for this page. Sorry for this short post.

It seems to have all been removed now. Clearly something needs to be done about spam now.

Yes, please can we have a "report spam" button. It's too much hassle to contact admins about it at the moment. Thanks.

Remove also in the RSS-feed, please.

this wish is expressed every two weeks... so I ask myself who's responsible for this part (user profile section) of the OSM-system? maybe we should talk with this guy...

See http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/dev/2010-March/018860.html .

The spam is usually noticed pretty much immediately. There isn't much of a need for a report spam button. The challenge is stopping the spam from being posted in the first place.

Not all spam gets removed - a report spam button would be good, but I'll email TomH instead

Let all users with have below x blog posts always went through a captcha (there a few people which, after x good posts post any spam) and add a report spam button with manual review.
