Seriously, I hate spammers. These people need to get a life and a job, other than posting crap on a quilting website.

Banned all these last night 0jsdfw0903 165ydd0903 2mq00903 2p280903 3hsdfgs00903 40wke0903 481add0903 48gte0903 66njfd0903 69hrde0903 6bsdfgs00903 6y780903 73zvde0903 80hqde0903 86hxm0903 86ucfd0903 8h210903 8ko90903 8wsdfgs00903 9qsdf0903. As if anyone in their right mind would make their user name something like that. Got a potential one now, posting on all the recipes, just waiting for him to go ahead and do something stupid. He's one of the type that comes in and makes X number of comments, then posts spam later on, thinking he can beat the system with a certain number of posts. Little do they know, it's not a "system".

Ran across an IP address that had like 1600 user names on it. Al is taking care of that one for me.

Oh, and if any of you are interested in getting bariatric surgery, finding an old folks home in Florida, or a dentist, plastic surgery or a lawyer along with all the designer knock-off stuff they post, there are websites to be had. Not to mention the porn.

It's amazing what they actually post sometimes.

Sometimes I seriously consider, in the spot where it says to put what you want the person to see as a reason they have been banned, just typing "Because you are a loser!" I just type Spammer.

that's why I could never work in retail. Sometimes I just can't stop myself

I started out in retail. I swore years ago that I would never work retail again, because of some of the customers. I had some that were the greatest people, but the ones that weren't made going to work just awful. Had one man go off on me, calling me every name in the book, simply because I opened the toolbox he was buying to make sure there was nothing in it. We had to. I waited until he finished his tirade before I tore into him. Basically told him to take the toolbox and stick it where the sun doesn't shine. All the time thinking to myself "I'm fired." As it turns out, my manager had heard the guy yelling at me, came over and was going to take care of him himself but I started. He silently stood behind me and let me finish. Then he tapped me on the shoulder, said good job and escorted the man out, telling him not to come back. I apologized to the rest of the customers in my line and started working again. All of them said "No reason to apologize" and most loved the fact I put the guy in his place.

Karen is like Nancy Drew ferreting out these creeps.

My word to SPAMMERS--What possible use are you if all you can do is spam a quilting website? You are the lowest of low, you should be crawling on your belly slithering off under a rock where you belong becuse you provide no earthly service except to irritate those you spam. Pardon my rant, but spammers and vandalizers have no earthly purpose in life. If you fit into either of those categories, I will not apologize for displaying my distaste for your earthly existence. GET A REAL JOB!

I reported a spam once, I really don't see how they find a quiet little site like this for what purpose.

I was in retail before I came here and went into the restaurant business. Customers are really hard to deal with. just a little while ago a lady was giving the cashier (grocery) a hard time and I got into a fight with her. lol. The cashier was about to cry and thanked me to death. :) I'm always patient unless two cashiers are chatting and ignore you, especially in another language. Won't get into that though:)

Ha, I've done the same thing at Walmart when some lady was going off on the girl and had her in tears. I stepped in and chewed the woman out and made her apologize to the girl then told her to leave. The cashier came around and hugged after the lady left. She said they weren't allowed to say anything and usually their managers wouldn't step in either.

I must add my thanks to you Karen and all the other moderators that make our lives on this site so enjoyable. I know it must be frustrating for you and we aren't even aware of your hard work. I, for one, appreciate all you do to keep this site running nice and smooth and spam free! Thank you!

I'm happy to hear I wasn't a crazy lady yelling at a crazy lady. lol Everyone in line were very supportive. The whole situation was a little weird.

I type "Spam not allowed!" Not that the computer program doing the spamming most of the time cares anyway.

Thank you Karen and the other moderators for doing this for us. I had no idea that there was spam at all besides you talking of it, let alone that there is so much of it.

I worked in retail several years ago, too. It was a place my uncle owned. Pretty often he told me to deal with certain customer situations (like when to give them an advertising gift to their purchase and when not) and when I got into one of those special situations with a customer, he took side of the customer and I stood there like an idiot. Was no fun at all. Glad I quit.

Thank you moderators for your hard work. I had no idea of the amount of spam. Well, seems you guys do a terrific job then if no one even notices the spam :)

I worked in retail, too, and, even worse, in a callcenter for many years. I thought working in a supermarket was already bad but actually it was never that stressy as a callcenter was. In my 5 years in the shop(s) I had only a couple times a situation when the customer was unloading his bad mood onto me. However, in a callcenter, especially at the customer care line, I had that situation nearly daily. I remember one person very well because he would call me, yell at me for 5 minutes (we were not allowed to hang up), threatening me as a person to sue me or if he finds me to hurt me etc. After that call I needed to take a 10 minute break because I was in tears.

Another time (that was at the end of my last callcenter job in Germay, I really didn't care about getting fired anymore) someone would also call me every name in the book and then I simply replied that I do not talk to losers who need to call an innocent worker on the service line to curse at him or her and hung up. I was in a very bad mood that day anyway already because our team managers were ***** as well. I understand that sometimes you are very angry as a customer because something went wrong but I never, never ever have yelled at the worker at the customer care hotline. I usually just say that I am very angry and apologize in advance and tell them that I mean the company and not them as a person in case I should get frustrated (I have never gotten loud tho). He or she is just doing his or her job after all.
