    Rick the owner of this forum just switched over to this new server. It was suppose to help stop the spam. As you can see, it did not help too much but I will make the suggestion to him. Thank You.

    In the meantime, as we have instructed members in previous threads, never-ever click on any of the spam.

    You can send me a private message anytime you see it first, I always have my email alerts.


    I always keep a tab open to our forum here but sometimes I sleep ..lol.

    Hi Pikey. Thank you for the idea but the Admin ( Rick the owner of this forum ) is the only one that can make changes like this on here. The vice Admins ( Angelrose and I ) can just delete things and bann members on this forum. Like Angelrose has mentioned everyone is more than welcome to e-mail us or the moderator ( laurarfl ) and we will take care off things as soon as we can. Thank you again for trying to help.
    Rich is not how much you have, or where you are going, or what you are.Rich is who you have beside you.

    That would be a good idea to stop some of the bots. If it is a member that signs in, then it won't help. :(

    Like txrepgirl said, we just delete it by hand and ban the users. It's all we can do at this point. Angelrose catches a lot of it.

    i know it wont stop the people but the 1's I've been seeing (the Russian posts) are bots same 2 pics & the same name just the numbers at the end of the name cycle, but the words in the posts are word for word (so 8/10 times thats a bot)
    just thought I'd post a "Suggestion"

    It is a good suggestion; maybe Rick will be able to do something about it. I agree about the bots...I think most of our spam is computer generated.
