One of the things that I’ve been concerned about lately is the event listings. In a previous article, I came rite out and stated plainly that events are free classifieds. The lab has posted a response to the growing number of complaints that they will begin enforcing existing policies outlined in the terms of service by moderating events, and follow up with community feedback.
I’m pleased that they are focusing on this, as it has become time consuming to find events. There isn’t a spam filter for this part of the platform, so someone needs to keep on top of it manually. I suppose the next concern is the level of moderation. Will they be too strict, or not strict enough? It’s going to take a bit of time to see if they are able to get a good handle on it, and perhaps deter others from creating spam (or classifieds) in the future.
