I kid. I kid. Well, kind of.
The other day I was ruminating on our comment spammers, and realized that they all want the same thing: links. Starting today, unpromoted users can't put links in comments. Oh noes!
When someone deserves it, promote them.
Also, I tweaked the spacing on the topbar.
I just promote peeps who talk about their own experience when they first join. Bots and marketers don't talk about themselves except as a foil to their products. Statistically, some of them will stick around, right?
