    It has seemed to be steadily increasing over the past few months...at least to me.....

    Isn't that the truth? I swear, you'd think people could find better use of their time other than sitting around posting on a hair board for goodness sakes :roll: :wink: :lol: !

    It has increased though :evil: .

    Apparently Gretchen closed the non-hair recipe board, which was not much used by NCers but was getting a lot of spam, and the spammers all migrated over here.

    I wonder if there is a way in the signing up process that could stop SPAM'ers?

    Usually the spammers are automated programs. Having to do the "yahoo" guess what the heck these letters and numbers are and type it in thing will weed most of those out.

    I swear the spammers have gotten just incredible here. I hope there's a way to add something to help this out. I know they're working on figuring out what to do.
    2c/3a?
    Low porosity, medium texture.

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    Maybe we should bring back the food/recipe forum just so they have some place to gather without annoying the heck out of us. We can call it the recipe forum for dummies (aka spammers). :roll:

    Maybe not a bad idea. :P

    Hey, I've got an idea. Let's have a spam forum, and they can go spam each other to their heart's content. And we will just ignore them.

    Oh, my gosh. I am rolling on the floor laughing. This is the BEST IDEA EVER!!! I literally have tears pouring out of my eyes. LOL!

    Actually, I did get a note from our developer last night after begging him to do something. He's working on and hopes to have something in place in a week or so. He said it's a MAJOR upgrade, and so we'll have to be patient with messed up things for a while, etc. But if it gets rid of the spam, I can put up w/ some temporary headaches.

    Yeah, it would be great if something could be done. In the evenings (when Europe wakes up) you have to actually look to see the proper posts between the SPAM threads. Crazy.

    Good idea Suzen. I wonder how you you would make them post in that forum only though. :wink: :)

    Ha ha. Well, that would be a good trick if we could figure that out, wouldn't it!
