What happened to Instructables? Answered

I've been away a while, and now that I'm back, I see a lot of purported instructables that are nothing but slideshows of finished projects with no instructions, usually with links to other sites, most of which are selling the plans or instructions.  Has Instructables totally changed, or have I misunderstood what it's about all this time? :(

Can you link to a few, haven't seen these appearing, but I'm dipping in and out of everything lately...

The spirit of instructables hasn't changed, still the same, however it sounds like a few nasty projects have slipped through...

Huh?  Really?

If you see a project that is genuinely there just to sell stuff, flag it as spam.
