Massively unwanted contact

Yes, if you got a private message that you suspect was part of a blast to a very large number of Dreamwidth users, even if you suspect it was not a bot, you are entirely justified in deleting it as spam if you don't feel like dealing with it personally.

[Edit: The antispam team has taken action regarding the current campaign, but if you have old messages from this campaign or receive new messages that seem to be part of this campaign or related, we would still like reports to monitor the extent of what went on.]


In general: the antispam team reviews all reports sent in through the antispam team. Sometimes it is a thing we can do something about. Sometimes it is not. But we do review each and every one.

Query: if you have already dealt with it personally, is there any benefit to flagging it as spam as well?

That makes sense, thank you!
