    This happened because of "open registration," which opened the spam doors.

    While this was a gated community, this place was just awesome. Now... listicles, how-to's, ugly Dribbble shots, "trends" posts, endless UX hot takes, and run-of-the-mill "show site" submissions are the norm.

      Invite-only though is not the solution. Why not make Users apply instead? The way you are selling yourself online should not matter for this.
