I spend HUGE amount of (both office and personal) time in various online communities, e.g. ASP.NET Forum, AspAdvice, WindowsForms Forum, my .NET User Group...etcetc. I enjoy the community life and browsing different types of forum, blog and other resource sites.
Today, I went to my local Microsoft MSDN Newsgroup suddenly (Well, I didn't visit it for some time due to some reason - keep reading)
What I can say is: “ah.. WTH... The problem still exist.. I mean, "SPAMMING" is all around!“
This problem maybe occur in my country only, as I can still see technical discussion in other countries, but will you spend time to (re)visit the MSDN Newsgroup if you're living here and see this screen:
Nothing (technical / .NET-related) but spam only?
I don't want to discuss the need and importance of "Moderation" mechanism in discussion groups, but PLEASE drop me a line if you know who monitor or maintain the Microsoft newsgroup, especially in the Microsoft Asia Pacific region!
