    WOW...when you look at 212 pages of members it sounds almost impossible....and when you actually look at some of the registered member names...I suppose it is alot of SPAM type on there. Thank goodness the ADMIN. does such a great job of "filtering" , JUST WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT I REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THE EFFORT PUT INTO THIS!

    It amazes me how many members we have. It has remained such a friendly, helpful site. We all know this is thanks to the administrator and his lovely monitors. Thanks so much.

    Yes, there are a lot of user accounts created for sending spam to other board members. There are companies that do it as a business.

    how do you tell a legitimate user from a fraudulent one?

    Great question! What is the purpose of the fraudulent ones?

    When you signed up here, you created a user account. Yours is "Ninnie" :)

    Great question! What is the purpose of the fraudulent ones?
    Mostly to post forum spam promoting the same kinds of products you see promoted in e-mail spam.

    how do you tell a legitimate user from a fraudulent one?
    It's a never-ending battle, and there aren't any specifics. But most of the time it becomes clear right away. When someone registers and starts posting messages about, say, a "great new credit card offer" or something like that without ever posting anything about quilting, you usually know right away.

    But so far we've been fortunate enough not to have many of those.

    I own a Boxer. I use to get on a Boxer board all the time. (You know how we all love to talk about a pets) It got so bad with the spam, mostly porn sites that I quit going to that site. No one did anything about it. Got to the point that only a few regulars would post something but you had to weed thru the spam. Really to bad because it was a very active board. I learned alot. Now here I am learning about quilting! So glad there is no spam or I would be gone again. This is the best board for quilters.

    I wonder.....do some people have so much spare time on the hands that all they can think about is how to wreak someone elses enjoyment. It's really sad. They need to find something worthwhile to do in all their spare time.

    It is not just that this board is clean as far as spam goes, but it is one of the nicest and most supportive boards on the web. I belong to another forum that is pretty nice but we have to clean house every so often and "uninvite" trouble makers. Thanks to all for making this a fun place to hang out.
