I am amazed at how many people say that they hate Spam, yet it's been on the market since 1937, so somebody's eating it because they sell millions of cans of it in so many countries.

Back to the problem with 'actual' spam, we do have a problem at the moment, which appears every now and then. Nick and I are looking to see if there's any way we can sort it out by changing the user registration process, but until we do that we're kinda having to put up with it.

It looks like a number of automated bots randomly sending out garbage, and they've identified exactly what then need to send to us to be able to pass straight through the registration and posting process.

Believe me, it's tougher on me than it is on you, because I have to get rid of the posts (with Devo and Nick's help) and then go delete the accounts, and we're getting up to 25 new accounts a day sometimes, all of which need killing. Fortunately, they are pretty easy to spot once you're looking at them.

What I will stress once again, is NEVER click on any links in a spam post. That may well have been the root cause of our problem (much like replying to a spam email tells them that your address is valid, clicking on a link sends a signal back telling them they have been successful). Report spam, don't reply to the post, and never click on any links.

Hopefully we can sort this out soon.

Good luck with taking out the trash.

Paul, my PM still doesn't work, by the way. If you could take a look at it, I'd appreciate it.

If I ever get to Hawaii, I am eating every type of Spam specialty that they make there- Spam omelettes, Spam with mashed potatoes and gravy, etc, etc.!

I have been reporting spam when it turns up on the discussion forums.

I have no use for it just as much other Rewinders.

Thank you moderators for sorting it out. [Smile]

I am seriously procrastinating writing out Christmas cards. Maybe I will wait until after dinner and have a few drinks while writing them out. Then I hope they get to the proper addresses! lol

I hate those letters that folks include in their Christmas cards. They are usually about things that I don't care about, from folks I don't care about. And they usually go something like this (and if you've ever received at least one of these, then you know that I'm not really exaggerating that much):
"Well, 2011 was an interesting year. Little Joey lost his first baby tooth--he cried and cried and cried until I smacked him on the behind and told him to be a big boy. John lost his job--he cried and cried and cried until he finished that bottle of Jim Beam whiskey and smacked me on the head with a lamp. We laughed about it all the way back from the ER. Mom had part of her necrotic bowel removed and is not doing well, but she loves to watch "One Tree Hill" on cable while she waits for someone to change her colostomy bag... I hope that your family is doing as well as ours! Have a Happy Holiday!"

Crash- I friggin' HATE those letters too. My friend used to put them in her cards every year until enough people (including me) complained and said they were stupid. She just wants to make it look like she and her husband and kids are soooo perfect in their perfect mini-mansion in their perfect neighborhood with stop signs and sidewalks and no strangers allowed. Grrrr. I hate those neighborhoods. Anyhoo, her letters could not be any farther from the truth- her kids are spoiled brats and the older one is like demon spawn. She and her husband are having money troubles (oh- boo-hoo- so you bought a house and three cars that you can't afford!) and they are up to their eyeballs in debt. Omg, I could go on and on.
