Is it just me or is anyone else noticing an increase in private messages, comments on threads, comments on project posts, from people advertising their “learn wood working”, etc.?

Hey LJ, are you doing anything to restrict or limit these unwanted and unsolicited posts? I already get enough junk mail to realize I wasted my time after tracking down the post by clicking on the link to the response notification in my email inbox, only to learn it’s really an advertisement.

You can always set the mail filters to send that type of mail to trash and never see it again!
