Adam Douglas I still frequent SomethingAwful. The question is: why? Because I like the community or because I want my money's worth? Been a decade and I still feel burned by buying an account. Still better community than Reddit though.

Mark Dain Does paying for access reduce spam?

Adam Douglas To answer your question, yes, the paywall does seem to reduce spam. Obviously I'm not a member of staff so I don't have any internal information, but I do not recall any issues with spam whatsoever. It's quite a peculiar community though, not one that you would call accessible. I've been giving forums a lot of thought lately as the internet has changed a great deal since I last had enough spare time to be active on its many communities.
