Please refrain from posting about this. It only makes matters worse. We all get those messages occasionally. Imagine if everyone of us posted a rant about it. It wouldn’t solve anything since the site admins do all they can. Spam is out there. If you want to become a billionaire, figure out how to end it.

Haven’t seen email from that joker in awhile?
Maybe couple months since Cricket changed the new account creation rules?

I have found it interesting to click the “who’s online” button. you can usually spot the spam accounts. They have been on LJ for thousands of days and only 1 post. I also never click a link or reply to a user that has one post if it deliberately vague.

Have your say...
