Starting today, The Saline Post has added a content approval process for articles on the website.
Users of The Saline Post can still register and add articles and photos and photo galleries, but once saved, they will need to be approved before they are published.
Early Friday morning, a spammer posted three articles about payday loans on the website, and those articles were delivered in the newsletter.
"We apologized for delivering spam in our newsletter," Post publisher Tran Longmoore said. "We wanted to make it easy for residents to share news about their community. Unfortunately, it was too easy for spammers."
For now, the new content approval process only affects users posting articles. Users can still post events and classified adds straight to the website.
There is no cost for posting content on The Saline Post.
Last month, 44,193 users visited the Saline Post, visiting 255,000 pages.
