I'm also very close to straight up deleting f/illegalism because of the non stop bomb/cp/drugs/guns/counterfeit spam and its continuing deterioration as a useful forum. It's been a wasteland for years.

I feel like the worst posters there almost exclusively post in illegalism. Idk if there's a way where only whitelisted can post to forums that are being hit hard with spam, (or nos violating stuff) or maybe not allow people to post unless they have commented on something first. I mean if there's no content here worth them engaging with then what's the point of posting. It's also way easier to see who is a shithead based on comments than posts tbh... I like the idea of an illegalism forum but also feel like I can't engage with it in the way I'd like to, as it would be very much a heat score for myself and for the forum itself ... There's a limit to how much illegalism can truly flourish on the clearweb tbh.

It's kind of funny to see the same threads again of panicked near misses with loss prevention at like Walmart, Target, etc...

I almost think some of it might be anti shoplifting propaganda...

"Oh no what will I do they caught me" "Ok just wanted to post to this illegalism forum that I regret ever shoplifting "

Also no linking oniun for just posts or the wiki and comments too?

My favorite illegalism post was 3 months ago, someone said they were back from being arrested and the VERY last post they had made was saying they wouldn't stop lifting until they got tackled. I responded to their post with So I guess someone tackled you, eh?. They've deleted their account but I still remembered the post. It was amusing.

I added dot onion to the spam filter so everywhere. No way to opt out of wikis being affected

Appreciate the heads up. I think the better workaround might be just to pastebin the markdown and link it to you so you can just copy/paste it in at your convenience. That way gaps between receiving messages and hoping that both parties are online at the same time, etc. can be avoided.
