StudentsReview is 9 years old!

Well, this happened in March/April, but now that the blog system works, I can finally write about it!  To think that 9 years ago to this period, I started SR along with assistance of 4 friends and the help of my parents immediately after I graduated from college… It brings back memories.  We’d sit in my inexpensive and unfurnished apartment, above this lunatical old woman, thinking of ideas for SR & how it was going to improve the… View More

While we get slammed a lot for being optionally anonymous, which is actually one of the awesome things about SR, the consequence of it is just the magnitude of resources to deal with the growing spam problem. I can see why many sites go to requiring a FB login before posting anything -- it makes the process of submitting spam through a robot substantially harder for ne`er do-wells, and thus far more manageable for the site heroes.… View More
