    Instant SPAM Alert?

    Is there anyway this site could hook up with some outfit and stop the dumb as hell spammage? We currently have some dimwit called "Kidkel69" attempting to sell me pictures of (I think) high school teachers.

    Really? That guy emailed me pretending to be a real member asking how to put in his own avatar. I will check it out. Is he emailing you?

    I forwarded what was clearly a SPAM/sales email (from a 0 posts newbie) to Brett just a couple of days ago. I already get about 400 daily junk emails to my personal email because my address is associated with my website and gets routinely harvested; now they're finding ways to penetrate website forums??

    BULLSHIT!!

    I never really thought of Buddhism as the aggressive-campaign-type religion. Do they send out guys on bikes also?

    Okay I just deleted a PM from natural 36dd about some nasty crap. I didn't open the PM b/c I thought it might pollute my 'puter. Didn't know how to forward w/o opening the PM, so I just deleted.
