I noticed today that several members here are now friends with our Spammer who uses various names like BabaJi. What are you thinking????? By "friending" this plague, you are giving them access to your profile. Over the past several week, the BabaJi/Astrologer?/Black Magic etc spammer has created over 1000 discussions that DC must root out and delete. Please examine the friend requests you receive more carefully…if you've "friended" BabaJi or his avatars, you might wish to "unfriend" him.

All listings in not the owners names have disruptive purpose. Having Diabetes is not a stigma any more and the Hippocrates Oath is not applicable to patients or suffers except making treatment open for discussion. Please do nt use Pseudonyms which cannot be related by Common Knowledge

They're back again today with new profile names but same old message tied to phone numbers hoping someone will be gullible enough to call. I blocked 7 profiles this morning that accounted for 67 new discussions!

Type1lou remember what I said last week in a post about it but in other hand if these weenies really are that tech savy they can get on friends lists without you I say this cause every now and then they show up as a response to someone's posting that's why I've been not posting much lately seeing if it's died down not to much today so I might answer a couple more posts

I posted this because I wanted to give the community a "heads-up". Most people sending a friend request are legit but every now and then, some creeps get through. Before accepting any "friend" request, I always go to that person's profile to get an idea of who they are and why they are on DC.
