Seems we have two that have invaded the board.

Enough have been flagged, but since it is the weekend they may not be deleted until next week.

I went to the website they were advertising and used to contact form to send a few choice words...

Which brings me to this little "Test". I want to see if this form will send comments to me. If someone would care to try it I'd appreciate it. It will NOT give me your email address or any personal info, just your name and whatever comment you write.

I tried twice. First time IE crashed on the window and second time got an error message for a 'bad' email address.

Thanks for your efforts.

I'm just messing around to see what I can get this to do.
We used to be able to add images in our comments but they made that impossible. I think it slowed things down (if that's even possible!)

That seems to help, too...as well as the flagging...

Hugs, Kathi

Just flagging it brings it to the attention of those who can fix it.
I know it's frustrating Kathi but nothing can be done until it happens.
They (the elves who fix stuff) can block the senders IP address but then they can just use a different computer to send spam again.
Maybe contacting the company that sent the SPAM could shame them into stopping that practice but that's unlikely...

I hope that there is a Special Section in Hell for Spammers...

A week or so ago the board was spammed by "Coach". It wasn't Coach at all but a site that sells counterfeit Coach products. I doubt any reputable company would engage in spamming of this sort and contacting the company that is doing the spamming might just open your private email to who knows what. The day the 'Coach' spam hit I was going to contact Coach until I saw it was not really them at all...

I think I just posted to one. I just saw this post after responding to a spammed post.
