lorele makes a good point about modding posts to keep this spam away...i think i'm actually going to approve posts as they come. there shouldn't be much of a delay, since i'm on the internet all the time (even in class...that's the wonder of law school!), and not approving posts as they come will let some spam slip through.
anything that is not spam (in other words, all of the beloved shinies) will come right through. :)
