Has anyone else received this message:

Looks suspiciously like the ever-ubiquitous and unwanted Ted’s Woodworking spammers at work again. Seems like they actually went to the trouble of opening an LJ acccount in order to ply their wares . . .

Received the same.
Wished there was a notify admin button in the message system.

Guess I’ve finally been accepted as a member here. I’ve seen many of these Ted threads but have never gotten one of their messages until this one showed up this morning.

It’s nice to be wanted.

Write BAD things publicly about TED, and he will block you evidently. I didn’t get one.

All I can say about TED is if you have a curiosity, just go visit a pron site. TED isn’t at all about woodworking, he’s about identity theft. He will harvest your e-mail, and evidently if you do go to his site to get the “good stuff” you have to give quite a bit of personal information. We are funny, our defenses are up to identity theft, but hey free stuff, and a lot of people drop their guard.

Just say no to TED. If 16,000 appears in anything pertaining to woodworking, he’s not bright enough to change his text, just say NO.

Every time one of TED’s spammer clones shows up…not only flag the bastard, but BLOCK that thing!

Almost need a “Ted Patrol” on this site, like a Neighborhood Watch?

yeah the problem is it’s new people or under different accounts and different email adddress’s so it never ends,everyone needs to just stay on them and report as soon as possible.

Well only good thing is I got an email notice of new private email. Had not been here for a long time. Saw the 16000 and yelled “Its ted”. Delete. I see he migrated to facebook too. Cheers all

Yeah! Got it today. Too bad, this site is a haven for purists and should remain so.

Yep. Got one too. Left it to fester. A little creative retaliation might be fun! Tech heads, what say you?
