    It would be nice

    to actually be able to find and read a quilting post on the weekends without endless digging through spam. It really isn't that hard to fix.

    Sifting through is tedious.

      I just bypassed 8 spam posts in "Discussion." It's becoming a real pain sifting through these posts which seem to appear in abundance on the weekends.

        I agree. It seemed like there was an abundance of them today. It's always worse on the week-ends.

            I visit several forums like this daily, and this is the ONLY one with the problem.

              However, they have nothing to do with the actual post it seems.

                Well that was my point, they get you to click on it.

                  I started hovering over to see part of the message. Some must be from foreign countries because the wording isn't right.

                    I just accidentally clicked on one of those spams earlier today......I normally just leave these posts alone during the week-end because I just don't want to click on something that isn't actually related to our forum here at MSQC.

                      I'd love to fix it Shirley, how do you keep from showing up on spammer lists?

                      I'm being a bit sarcastic, as obviously spam is an incredibly difficult problem to fix when you're the size of traffic we are, but I'll try a few new tweaks today and see if we can put a little time between us and the next wave of attacks

                        Thanks Bill. I noticed the forum was down for most of the day (at least for me) so I was assuming that perhaps you were working on that. I missed you guys!!
                        Back in the late 90's before forums and such there were the newsgroups. It eventually had a lot to do with the loss of that venue. The groups that I went to were hit particularly hard because there were a few sexual abuse recovery ones I helped out on. Due to the name with "sexual" in them they were targeted big time with porno spam unfortuntely. It eventually was impossible to rid the tide and come out ahead. Those venues went by the wayside.
                        I know how difficult it is to maintain spam free site (if it's really possible at all they are so adept and persistent) and the hours and hours that are put into it. Very frustrating.

                          I know we all hate them, but how many of us are hitting the icon to report them so that they can be pulled down ASAP? The sooner we do it the faster they'll be gone.

                            I agree. I belong to several other forums and there is no spam. Why is there so much here??

                              My list includes one of the biggest and best known horse websites on the 'net, and they VERY rarely have a problem. I've been on that one since 2002.
