There is a spam post on the tangerine tart question. I tried to flag it, but it came up "invalid form"

I had the same problem, they not only spammed you but other questions and I think they even did le bernadin. Which we cannot flag.

Yes, this spammer has been around all week. Seems like the Flag button on foodpickle is not working, either. Where, oh where, is Peter when we need him??

The same spammer showed up on Jenny's Lotus thread, but that was deleted quickly.

Hope we can rectify this quickly as it's really annoying.

That spam has been so annoying! It makes me rethink whether I want instant notifications via email. But Food52 seems to get on top of these nuisances.

We're working on fixing the Flag button now -- thanks for bearing with us!

And we're also looking into what we can do to protect the site against these spam-bots. For the time being, if you see anything suspicious, just email [email protected]

yes, it's aggravating to see this stuff that has nothing whatsoever to do with food or food52 cluttering up the place.

Maybe will we end up having those little "type the word that you see" boxes before our messages get posted?
