The otherpress section has been overrun with spam.
The "articles," predictably, are advertisements for prescription drugs and
porn. Because there is no batch deletion option in the editor interface
for otherpress articles, I'm deleting it directly from the database. I
hope this is okay. It's literally hundreds of entries.
This happened because there is no spam filter (the code you have to enter
to post an article) for the otherpress section, and has been going on for
We should probably consider either figuring out how to put a spam filter
on otherpress or removing the module entirely. I lean towards the latter,
because I think otherpress is less used (like the media gallery) and
putting a spam filter is work I'd rather devote to other tech projects,
like getting embedded video on the site... but I'll go with consensus.
