Yes, I woke up to about a dozen of them this morning. I blocked him. (my only block btw).

Ellen, haven’t seen you in awhile. I was one of the people when some LJ’s met in Lexington Mass years and years ago that Purplev organized. I was the guy who brought my wife.

Hope all is well.

Cricket and her staff is working diligently to set some kind of limits
or firewalls on this pestilence that is hitting all of us. (I got mine too).
please, FLAG ONLY ONCE so the mail boxes of Admin do not get overloaded.
sometimes, they have to spend more time reading through PMs and Flag Reports
than getting rid of the offenders.
patience – Admin is well aware of the problem. so please do not flag each and every
hit you get from the spammers. unless of course they are using a different name.

pes·ti·lence – noun
a fatal epidemic disease, especially the Bubonic Plague.
“neither prayers nor demonstrations halted the advance of the pestilence

so yes, Ted’s invitations of 16,000 Free Plans is a PESTILENCE to us just like the Bubonic Plague.

Happy and Safe Holiday Season to one and all !!

I’ve had the same problem, plus “Ted” is using photos of my work and claiming it for their own. I’ve tried threatening legal action but no go.

PS Hello Ellen and Craftsman on the lake. I was at that same gathering in Lexington a million years ago. Hope you’re both well.

I am swamped.

On the plus side, I haven’t been on lumberjocks in a long time and it brought me back here. Maybe it is a back door membership drive?

Add “Woodworkines” to the list of nuisance members (if anybody started a list) It’s like Old Homes Day, seeing all the old names and faces on this thread; glad to see you’re all alive and kicking! Hope you all have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

Just remember that if you flag a spammer only do it once. And if it has been more than a couple of hours, someone else has probably already flagged them so don’t bother. Flagging them multiple times just creates more work for the admins and techs to sift through their inbox.

On the plus side, I haven t been on lumberjocks in a long time and it brought me back here. Maybe it is a back door membership drive?

I had to laugh at that. Stick around and hang out with us. On another thread on this topic, someone joked that maybe it was the admins trying get all you guys to come back. In a couple of cases where the spammer hit one of the old threads I was watching it was a nice reminder of something interesting that I re-read so its not all bad.
