    How many of you got a PM from jenniferloop about starting a new forum? Spam?


    I am just launching a quilting forum. For that reason i need some one who can register there. And post there quilting work and tutorial. As the site will be new there will be no much users, But if u write some of ur work people will surely come. Plz support me if u can help by joining my forum ,and newbie can profit from ur tu8torial and work.

    This will surely give u a high reputation when we reach 30k users in 6 month. As u will be the oldest member there .
    Plz let me know what u think about it

    I did not, but that really doesn't mean too much.

    There was a previous post that there were some unhappy people on this board and another board was being created, maybe she is the creator. Doesn't much matter to me as I like it here and have no plans to join another board.

    Sure doesn't seem on the up and up with the very poor spelling and grammar. Reminds me of the letters I(Spam) telling me some wonderful benefactor in Nigeria left me millions and all I had to do was send a couple of thousand to release it!

    I'm not sure that that's allowed here but make sure Patrice knows about it. Shoddy actions to say the least.

    Could be a plan to create a site, hoping to just get a lot of visitors, in order to make money off of advertising revenue. You know, like the ads that appear on this forum.

    'Course, we know that here there is lots of good content! People won't keep coming back if there isn't really any good content.

    Could also be way to add your email to spam. Or a virus. How would one know so I keep away.

    I avoid anything with bad spelling like that, as it is usually not legitimate - someone said it right - it is like those "a stranger has entrusted you with a million dollars" thing. Probably a virus, spam or phishing.

    And, don't know about anyone else, but this group has so much info, inspiration, etc - I have a hard time keeping up with it, let alone another group!

    Bad grammar and bad spelling are not acceptable when begging with words.

    Wow! I missed out. Her wording was so bad I had to read it twice before I was sure what she was asking. What I got was she wanted to profit from others work. So nice that she asked!!!

    I really don't like lazy people who can't spell out words like YOU and I can't tolerate people who can't spell simple words like 'their'.

    Sorry, she's a no-go for me.

    sometimes folks use that 'poor spelling' to avoid spam protectors that look for certain key words.

    I don't read them when they are like this, and I don't read the posts that are in all capital letters. My eyes really complain if I do...

    No, I haven't, but I read somewhere on here once that if you get spam in your PM, to let the Mods know and they'll take care of it.
