'It lives!' + Porn vid spam

#1 I am still alive and lurking. More on that later.

#2 Fandom comms all over LJ are, at present, being spammed with porn vid posts by at least two journals: elianaabel447 and angiepritchard. I haven't put direct links to them as, if they're spamming, who knows what else they might be up to?

Four of my comms have been hit: slashthedrabble, slashtheimage, spn_betas and we_love_secret6. The others are, I hope, now safe, as I have banned both journals from all of my comms, via LJ's nifty Admin Console.

For those who are not tech savvy (which very definitely includes me), here is the admin console reference, providing instructions on how to use it.

It's all pretty basic. To ban a journal from your comm(s): ban_set username from commname, repeated in the console window for each comm you have mod privileges with, and then click and you should get a list of verifications in green text.

The posts in question are (mostly, I hope) being deleted as spam, so hopefully LJ will kill the journals pretty soon, but... well, it's LJ, so let's not all hold our breaths. ;)

In conclusion: I am alive and modly, if somewhat quiet. *hugs you all*
