Tired of the Spam....

Postby Ian66 » Aug 26, 2013 11:32 pm

Anyone other than me tired of this constant/daily posting of spam that is ruining what this site is for......ie Gardening......

Seems Canadian Gardening.com doesn't care how their site is being degraded by spam and will not address the problem.

Ya... me too, Ian. But I keep working on 'the serenity to accept the things I cannot change'.

Well Frank, I guess I am more of the opposite....."The squeaky wheel gets the oil" concept......hopefully someone will realize what a gem this site was......

I am really tired of it. I try to report it when I can, but there is so much of it.

I can say with absolute certainty that if I was looking for what they are selling, I would not, out of principle, even consider contacting them.

I can't imagine they actually think what they are doing could assist them.

I wonder if there is anyway for Canadian Gardening to block it. Who are the moderators here?

I have written them numerous times and received no replies.....this used to be a very good and friendly website to exchange gardening ideas etc.....everyone got along and it was a huge source of information....
But when all this spam started up....and I mean alot.....you cannot find posts and it looks more like a furniture website.....
Apparently the moderators are at the mercy of the website and you cannot blame them at all...they are powerless
I was a moderator years ago at a different website and there is software available to handle this intrusion.....but canadian gardening Inc. I guess doesn't want to send the money.....

They will probably delete this soon....and I will probably not come back, like many others who are as frustrated.......

I'm sorry to hear Ian.

I have very much enjoyed this website, and your advice has been an integral part of it.

You should set up your own page or Facebook page
