    I hadn't encountered these spammers here before I read this post. I just ran into some last night. Thanks for keeping the site safe, Karen.

    You noticed that too. This batch has a little better grasp on the English language.

    If it were up to me I would do it in a heartbeat

    I have blocked the people who post their projects to blogs, then post the links to their blogs here. There is one in particular I've gotten a nasty, nasty virus from. Let her know, blame was placed on me, and she refused to do anything on her end of things. If you can't post it here, I'm not wasting my time clicking on different links to go see it.

I know a lot of sites do that these days. Also those weird letters you have to type in to prove that you are not a robot! Sometimes I can't make heads or tails out of them and a few have a place to click to get another choice.
    They do have to get an email validation from the forum, but all that requires is a valid email address.

    Vonnie I always have to get new info on those darn things. Sometimes three or four times! Very annoying. I think the people who make them up are sadists LOL

    Thanks again to our moderators who clean up our spam
    That's a great idea!
