    I think JB used to stay on top of this and delete such comments, but the nCafe currently has 2 questionable recently new entries:

    1) This crackpot entry.

    2) This entry with the only purpose being to include a url to “cures for candida”.

    The 2nd should be deleted and probably the 1st unless crackpots are kept for amusement purposes.

    Who has the privileges to delete such these days?

    Who has the privileges to delete such these days?

    All nnCafé hosts have the same privileges to edit everything and always had. And we all do and did try to look after spam and related, as far as I am aware.

    I have removed the two comments you pointed out.

    Quite a lot of n-Café spam accumulating. Leaving it alone encourages more which diminishes the usefulness of the Café, so can one of the ‘hosts’ do a bit of cleaning, please! ;-)

    ( Later: someone has. Thanks.)

    Someone has put something on the texnical_issues section of the Café, the result of which is that any of the links there give the following.

    I wondered about that but it would take quite a bit of research to find such a suitable thread given the subject matter of Lakatos’s Proofs and Refutations.

    What is it about that post? Can we shut down comments on it? The potential for someone to come along 12 years later and give a comment that outweighs all the spam that’s received over the years seems very slight.
