Hi Guys,

Please do not reply to spam posts - it makes it more annoying for us mods to delete them. Please report them (some of you very faithfully do that and it's appreciated!) and then one of us will delete it - whoever logs on first.

When you reply to posts we mods can not delete the thread, we have to delete the posts individually first then delete the thread.

Thanks for helping us make the community better!

Perky, we report it in "Notify"? can't see any "flag" or "report" option here...

Yes, we must report spam posts to keep the forum integrity very high. Spam posts are often focused on selling a product or bragging about income in some fashion.

No I don't think it can be stopped completely but if we all "notify" the moment we see them, without commenting on the thread, it will make it much easier for the mods to deal with them. smile

Thanks everyone!

spam is also stealing content from other sources and posting it here just to get links like you are doing.

in fact this post of yours is stolen from here

Hmmm...the "or bragging about income" sounds like someone we know.

LOL!

I just went through and of the 36 posts created by deepikasnv only 3 remain - they actually make sense to the conversation and add some sort of value. Everything else was just nonsense drivel.

It is nice to see that the effort is made on here to get rid of that stuff. Some of these forums are horrible for the nonsense they allow!

Perky

You do a Great job!!!

I was on this forum a few years back and the backbiting and spam got bad, so I quiet the forum for awhile.

I know who rules in your house....lol!

Again, thanks!

Thanks

Morris

Thanks guys. smile I just found another spammer today and deleted all 27 posts (made in about an hour's time last night, lol) and banned said person. As always, it's helpful if you guys click the "Notify" link at the bottom of any spam posts you see - we don't always see them right away but as soon as we're notified one of us mods will zap em good! smile

You might check out Chris_S, Leon FS, and Insider. They've all done multiple posts within a short time span (couple of hours) that pretty much add nothing to a coversation - in many cases, on posts 5 and 6 years old.

You can find spammy post very easily because the post will be irrelevant to the topic. So, you can easily find and notify as a spam.

How do we report tv commercials, radio ads, billboards, banner ads, door hanger flyers, u.s. mail, voice messages, telephone calls, blogs, and all other types of promotional communications as spam? It seems everywhere I look we are constantly being bombarded with all that spam.

I mean electronic spam is the worst because it's free and doesn't cost them anything, and I would rather them pay a lot of money so that can trickle down to everyone else so that we all pay more for the products and services. The more their advertising cost is then the more expensive the products and services will be for you and me and that would be fantastic, and heaven forbid them actually making some money to feed themselves and their children we definitely wouldn't want anything like that.

So, I just want to commend you good folks for keeping up the good fight against the dreaded and evil scourge of God known as spam. I hear that North Korea and Cuba doesn't have anyone spamming within their borders - you might all be happier there in that type of economy. I don't know, just a thought.
