    Default Spammers are such idiots

    To those of you that think your spam gets posted, it does not. It goes to a moderation queue and it takes all of 2 seconds to delete it.

    It doesn't bother me so much that the spammers are idiots. It does bother me that they think we are also.

    As for me, this problem is very relevant. Every day you meet with a mass of unnecessary information. These are dozens of letters in your inbox, and completely abstract messages on the forums. I cannot unequivocally say that all this information is unnecessary and harmful, but 95% is just informational garbage that simply steals your time.

    You mean like the idiot that tries to sell iPhone 5-packs seemingly everyday? The prices are in Canadian dollars.

    There are a lot of members that have never posted, but are on and private messaging. Rick and I have no way of viewing those messages, so we rely on y'all (yous guys) to let us know if you are being spammed via PM.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. After all, they should know that I'm the one that's always right. They have a lot of nerve thinking they are right even part of the time. I'm humble, too.

    Rick, Not that I'm a computer expert, as I do know what SPAM is as advertizements. From day one in the group during a posting or REPLAY my system sometimes will freaze up and boot me off the forum. I thought it was my VPN so I turned it off. Still having problems and calls to my service I learned the IP was blocked so I changed and came back into the group. Then again it started and I got booted and turned my VPN Back on and got back in.

    This is not a joke and if done by a user in the USA its a federal Crime called Cyberstocking. I wrote a note asking the adminastrition to look into this issue and if they should need help I or them can contact FCC. But if coming from outside the USA Customs Border Protection has a Ciber crime unit. we can contact. Do you know what is happening?

    Are you checking the Remember Me box when you log in? If not, you will get bumped out after ten minutes of inactivity. The Remember Me box in the upper right hand corner sets a cookie on your machine and will keep you logged in.

    YES, always, every time I have always done that. The problem times for me living on the East cost start at 2 PM and as late as 9 PM. As this is a NEW Laptop I was advised by NORTON to contact Microsoft and given an 800 number.

    Might want to check your browser security settings. If you have them set to "Strict" or "Strong" this site, and a lot of others, will break.
    Which begs the question, why does this site have social media trackers on it? My browser tells me it is blocking them when I log in here.
