In an effort to curb the influx of spam in my communities (thanks new management, a fine job you're doing) membership in all of my communties is now moderated. Requests for membership will be evaluated based on a simple review of your journal. I will only reject membership if I suspect a bot (i.e. few friends, many communities, recent journal).
If you feel I have made this judgment in error, you may feel free to appeal but may not receive the answer you want. I am in the habit of reporting blatantly obvious bots and spam monkies, so retaliation won't get you far. Sorry.
This information will be posted in the userinfo for further reference. Feel free to post your questions and concerns, I will try my best to address them. But please understand that I'm old now and have seen more invested days.
Cross-posted like a mother. I reckon I'm spamming myself then.
