Just wanted to give you all a heads up..

Simy said that sooner or later the spammers would find us and they have. Luckily for us, Simy is right on top of things and has been deleting them as quickly as they appear.

In the meantime, beware of any "new" poster that provides a link to click on. DO NOT click on it..

Because of this I'm going to privatize some of the boards so only users with permission can see them..new members won't be able to view them unless we give them permission.

If you find that I have accidentally forgotten to add you to a board, please PM and I'll add you.

That is a really sensible approach to these (often) electronic spammers and for that reason I would add the advice that it is NOT a good idea to write your e-mail address, message name or VOIP (like Skype) call sign in full on any post.

This can be achieved quite easily by writing - for example - like this;

E-mail: fredblogsATyahooDOTcom
Instant Message: fredDOTblog
VOIP: FredDOTBlog

The electronic spammers are unable to read and use this format but everyone else can understand what your 'cyber name' is!!!![/u]

I would like to say that spammers add an ICQ number on their profile: never click on it!

As for emails, only registered users can see links and email addresses on forums, and spammers never log in and never activate their account, so they don't see them.

Thanks for those extra tips. I never realized that spammers don't log on..

And Carole, I agree..emails should never be posted unless you alter them as you suggest..I always try to correct anyone that posts any other way..just in case..although I may just be overly cautious.
