Sadly, Livejournal seems to be overrun with spam entries lately and communities are suffering. I'm sure you're all tired of seeing spam appearing on your friends lists as much as I am.
I mark each and every one of these spam entries as spam when I delete them, so that LJ moderators know these accounts are probably bot accounts, and I remove the transgressor from the member lists as well so they can't post anymore, but I grow tired of having to ad-hoc remove entries whenever I see them pop up on my friends list. This is why I'm setting the community to have all new posts queued for mod inspection. I'm sure you all understand.
This basically means that:
1) If you post to the_corsetiere
your entry will not show up right away.
2) A moderator will have to look at each entry before it can be posted to the community.
3) There will be no more spam entries in this community.
4) I can pro-actively delete users from the community if they submit spam entries (for cigarettes, porn, or other non-agreeable off-topic items or services)
5) You will see less spam. Normal entries will not be affected, only delayed a bit.
Of course you may comment with your objections or contact me directly on janestarz [a]yahoo [dot] com should you want to discuss this in private.
Thank you for your time and attention. Now get posting some about corsets!
(Second post in a row, second MOD post in a row. Where are the corsets?!)
