It's Sunday and the Spammer is back, posting as I report/block 3 profiles accounting for over 1000 (yes one-thousand!) discussions! It bring to mind the Star Trek battles with the Borg and the Borg caution "Resistance is futile!"…Jean-Luc Picard never gave up!

I wish these spammers would just get a life. I they had something good to do maybe they would be happier. Hay Spammers, get a girl friend / boy friend, get married, and have kids. Then you won't have time to make all these spam posts.

By blocking/reporting the profiles causing the spam, you don't have to go through each discussion post to report it. There were over 300 posts this morning caused by 6 new profiles. I reported them before 10:30 am EDT and they are already gone (some may have been reported by others prior to my getting on-line.) Thank you DC for the quick action/deletions! By checking Google, I've discovered that these spammers have been around for a while and have "attacked" many sites. In many cases, the site users have been entreated to report them as soon as they see them. Because I am not an IT professional, I wouldn't presume to criticize those dealing with this problem. I agree that the spam is AGGRAVATING. If I can help to be part of the solution, that's what I'm going to do.

Harlan, today the spam is really bad. I have no intention of going through each one blocking them. I am tired of reporting them. Their tech team can get rid of them but to me it is obvious they don't know how.

The PA's and CA's said they are doing what they can and to report them each time we see them. I stopped believing anything they say about spam and am not policing the site for them. That is not my responsibility. Why on earth would I sit here and go through well over 100 spam post and report each one. I can find something else to do until they clean it up.

This site could easily stop the ads - but - that is their income! Selling Ads funds these sites, so it's not likely to stop the advertisers!

Harlen is speaking of the spam adds for astrology which have been posted overnight quite consistently. I expect his posting this discussion expresses his frustration (and mine) over the situation.

They're back with a vengeance today…13 pages worth and over 200 posts…I've blocked/reported 9 new profiles all with tel #'s that have been used in past attacks…

I don't think he means the paid ads. We are having a huge problem with spammers from India on the site. They bomb us with junk every night. Not a fun thing to wake up to in the morning
