Yes, I continue to get these. How do we get rid of them?

Just got one. Didn’t click the link, but signed in directly. Saw the spam message and ignored it.

It happens from time to time. It’s pretty hard to stop all of them.

Is there any value in creating a thread to discuss this, which ultimately serves no purpose, and only increases the noise surrounding the problem?

I have gotten a couple, but i don’t open them. I sent a message to Cricket and she’s said she is working on it . I think it is almost impossible to stop, because they can generate so much and most is impossible to track.

Indeed it is impossible to prevent completely. That’s why creating threads to discuss them is counterproductive. It only exacerbates the situation.

Cricket has asked that we not do so, and everyone should follow her wishes.

I just block the sender. I got that very same one. There ought to be a button to report spam in messages the same as there is one on blog entries.

They are real annoying and I just cannot accept the idea of some that the threads are just as bad and it is just best to ignore the spam. With all of today’s technology things can be done.

Please create a new thread to discuss the issue of creating new threads to discuss spam.

Thank you.

No one said that. The point is simply that starting a thread to bitch about it serves no purpose and only adds to the problem. The Admin has specifically asked that we refrain from doing so, so what’s your problem with heeding her wishes?

You are the one who sounds like an ass with your head in it. If I see a problem I say something about it. You can donate all the money you want…go for it. I will always continue to speak my mind and not ignore problems
