Tom:

In case you have not noticed it, there are 3 postings on this site for jewelry and the postings have absolutely nothing to do with CED.

The author of the postings is Dailuiya. This account should be cancelled or disabled to avoid any more usage. I for one get enough spam in my e-mail and do not want any on a forum that I visit almost daily.

I saw that and figured Tom will get rid of it once he sees it. You can't really look at the topics and not know from the title it's spam. What gets me is why a spammer would even bother with this site? I mean how many people check the site regularly? I've never paid attention to any of the member counts or "most people online at one time" (if there is such a thing). Tom possibly just hasn't seen it? I can't believe he'd want it on the forum. I see it occasionally on another forum I belong to and I'm guessing that one only has maybe 2 or 3 times the active members that this forum has. It makes sense on some forum with ALOT of active members (as much as possible- I mean who's going to pursue more info by following the provided links??), but on a small member forum like this, the spammers are really wasting their time.

trust me its spam, and i know tom does not want it there. sadly only tom is a moderator and is probably indisposed a majority of the time. i have expressed interest in being a moderator to help the forum awhile back but nothing ever came of it. it has been awhile since the boards were spammed though...

It has to be a bot, I mean if someone wanted to be efficient with spam they would chose a larger forum or at the least spam this one with something more relevant.

I emailed Tom before the thread was even started. If you don't see the spam then the offender is gone.

Okay, still there, but you have to A) Be incapacitated at a high level to see that the titles are somewhat nonsensical or flat out stilted and

B) Nobody that uses CEDs would be that silly as to click on and use the links.

It takes a while for SPAM to clear out, or it's still there and moves way down in the queue...and virtually everyone that visits regularly just complained...who's left?

(oh wait, that's a potentially political question Rolling Eyes )
