STOP THE SPAM

Postby fernleaf » Aug 16, 2013 2:26 pm

Is there no way of stopping the SPAM on this site????

How are other forums managing to keep the spammers away? It is very sad what is happening here. I used to enjoy coming here but now, almost every post you open into is from someone trying to sell something. Truly a waste of one's time.

There are ways to stop the spam , but CG and its parent company have no desire to spend the money to make the changes necessary and give Tara the power and assistance she would need to monitor and approve applications for membership in the forum. I agree , it was a great site , and could be again if senior management would just give a damn.

I really don't like to admit defeat.I still come here because I remember how great it was.I look,see the mess,shake my head,and leave.

I post now and then ... just because I guess.

Sad is what it is.

They really should fix it or close it out.They are paying for this mess and also not doing right by their customers.I will not be re-subscribing to CG.
