I had taken the past week and a half off of the website. For personal reasons I had to. I had hoped that at least one out of the 50 or so people who have access to edit this site would have busted the large amount of spam we get. Sadly they did not.
I just spent the past 5 hours busting spam. We have a spam filter but spam is getting smarter. Our site has also become more popular over recent months which led to a dramatic increase in the amount of spam. Please bear with me, as I am one of the few who work on this site regularly, and after the past 10 1/2 months of nonstop actions, marches, protests, activism, and movement building, we are all worn a little thin, and trying to keep up.
If anyone would like to donate to help us get a paid spam filter, please visit the OLA General Fund Wepay, and donate, earmarking the money for the website/spam busting ect. We also have a few other site related costs we need to cover in upcoming months.
If you would like to contribute to this site, please feel free to drop me a note. Contributer status is available to everyone to post blogs, news, videos, flyers and more. We have hundreds with contributor status, unfortunatly people are so enamoured with facebook, they fail to utilize this site to its full potential.
If you want to contribute please email me at lizsavage dot occupyla at gmail dot com
