    Just thought we'd show off our new blogging site at: http://topicshare.com/ using a web 2.0 template. Any suggestions? Comments? most appreciated.

    i like the idea. So basically you're letting folks setup forums for free?

    We were using Wordpress MU on TopicShare - but it became a spam farm within a few weeks - MU needs to desperately address its spam controls - as it's seriously giving blogging a bad name.

    We love MU - we've set up up on at least 5 servers over the past year (all removed now) - but until it finds an "easy" and effective way of reducing automatic splog creation - we removed them as it affects our revenue and made our sites look amateurish.

    Well, I hate to give a standard answer but I know if you asked any dev, they'd say "that's what plugins are for". (although I agree soem way may be able to be addressed thru the code itself)

    We've gone over the topic of splogs countless times, and a few of us have slowed them down to almost nil without a whole lot of effort.

    So, what did you try on your installs?

    @mabobo - not sure what you guys are doing over there. there are at least a half dozen solutions to this in the forums. You might wanna consider some WP plugins or akismet.
