I'd like to suggest that when we come across spam posts, that we quote them into a new message here like this one that just showed up.

Sorry for selection category to leave a letter for you about what is cialis and generic cialis
buy cialis online now  Denver and once a day cialis generic   generic cialis bestellen  Ca mayoglamyBymn: As a result, Cialis ads were also the first to describe the side effects in an advertisement, as the FDA requires advertisements with specifics to mention side effects.  Doc recommend also: cialis generic  Des Moines


The quoted post has a link back to the original post.

If we do this (instead of posting a reply to the original post)
  • we have one central place where we can all report new spam (easier for the moderators to watch)
  • we avoid bumping that post up to the top of the "unread messages queue"
  • we deny the spammers the satisfaction of getting notifications when someone posts a reply in their new threads

It's easy to do - Just hit the little quote button above an offending messsage, then select the text and copy it to your clipboard. Do not post a reply in the original thread. Instead, come here and post the copied text into a new message.  You don't have to post any commentary (unless you really feel you need to say something about it). Most spam is self-explanatory.

I agree ST.

By the way, what is meant by the "notify"selection of the options attached to each post?  I thought it might be a way of "reporting" spam or whatever, so I clicked on it and got a window that has a meaning I don't understand so I cancelled it.  Excuse my ignorance, but what does "notify" mean?

Hi Kurt,

Edit - Notify turns on email notifications so that you get an email if someone replies to a discussion in which you have posted. I think this is turned on by default.

This is not a mechanism used to report offending posts.

Hi Kurt,

We must be using different themes. I don't see a notify button on my screen anywhere.
I guess I should have said at the top and bottom of each thread (not post).  There are 5 (blue in my case) tabs with the options of  Reply|Notify|Mark Unread|Send this topic|Print
I was wondering what the Notify tab was for.  I think I figured it out though.  Is it that if you click on that tab, you will be notified of any replies to your posts in that thread?  I'm so embarrased blush

Got him.     I've banned 4 spammers already today.   I had no idea we were under attack like this.    Pharmaceutical peddlers seem to be drawn here.  I suppose it's like this on all forums.

Every two days I have to delete about 250 entries like the ones above from the guestbook of my band's homepage. Don't know how they are doing it, since we do have security measures to avoid spam...

Many colleges and universities now offer students the chance to earn their diploma without ever setting foot in a classroom. Online Diploma programs usually need students to self-pace their learning around instructor-determined task and check deadlines. Instructors can use textbooks, videos, slide show presentations, online discussion groups and even live lectures to teach their material. There's lots of advantages to earning a diploma online, however, not all subjects show best for online learning.

1:Flexibility
2:Convenience
3:Lack of Direct Contact
4:Home Equipment Necessary
5:Opportunities for Scams
