    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.

    If they really bother anyone that much, you don't have to stay on this forum. The mods keep up with them the best they can, but you can't expect them to monitor this site 24/7...feel free to not let the door hit you on the way out...js.

    I think it's pretty easy to recognize spam without even clicking on it. So don't click on it and don't keep count of how many there are. How hard is that. Thank you admins I think you do a pretty good job and I appreciate all you do. Don't let the complainers get you down.
