I wish there was some type of computer virus we could send to someone who post more than two links on this website....I.E. - Advertisements....that would fry their computer.

I think it's ridiculous that people do this on a site of such good people trying to help one another.

It just makes me MADDDDDDDDD. Grrrrr.

Have a good weekend yall

rgds,

jamie

We usually just delete them but this week thought I'd leave a few up so you can see the stuff that gets posted here most days.

No Lorie-we are not talking about your links!:) There are a few sick individuals who go to great lengths to register as a legimate member and then try to trick visitors into clicking onto their porn sites. then we get the usual links to refinance or buy viagra or whatever. The most puzzling one to me is the woman who keeps trying to sell us Avon products. Why go to all this trouble to market to an audience that clearly has more pressing things on their minds? cindy

Advertisements, Those are Sickening

I do buy AVON from my self. But, I don't Literally sell it. This is crazy. Surely you are E-mailing them back, tell them to get lost. Is there someway to block them from the site.

I don't care for that sort of thing, especially like you said taking advantage of people with real problems and issues.

I haven't ran up on this yet, God help them if I do!

Need any help, let me know! Where are the links?

Lorie:eek:

There are 5 moderators looking after the site. Most of these crappy links are gone within a few hours but sometimes if we are not ON for a few hours they might be here longer. We can't make everyone a moderator so we just do the best we can.

But what is weird is that do really these people think that we are interested in their products?
so if it is a marketing strategy they are following, then it is loosing cause now and after the AVON posts for example , in case I want to buy creams or so I will avoid this brand.

I do buy the products but from a woman I know. I've never even clicked on the links that get posted here but I wonder if it is a legitimate Avon product or some solution somebody made up in their garage just to try to make a buck?

As for the marketing stratedy, you are right. These guys are lost before they begin. Unless they are just phishing for credit card numbers! It makes more sense that these links are part of some scam! Cindy

. Somewhere our name is on some list and I don't know where it is to get us off it. I did contact the acne med company and they said they are trying to find these fraudulent spammers as well. We are getting on average 3 new members per day posting ads. We try to pull them as quickly as possible.

Al, after we pull them off another one comes back with a slightly different screen name. I wonder if it is the same scammer phishing for credit card #'s? As if anybody would buy acne cream from an unknown source.:?: Cindy

Banned 3 already today. And it's only 4pm. They sure are persistant. These guys had drugs and all sorts of other goodies. If you know what I mean. Nudge, Nudge, wink, wink, know what I mean?
