Hello everyone,

I was very frustrated with two spam posts that were made this morning from a random user trying to promote inappropriate things. The posts were deleted as soon as an administrator saw them, and we will do our best to prevent this from happening in the future. We have also started filtering words that should not be used anywhere on this forum.

Unfortunately, there are people out on the internet that feel it is okay for them to put these types of messages on any forum they can find, nevermind that the subject of that forum indicates that these types of promotions are not appropriate.

If you ever see something like this, please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail (jess@thequiltandneedle.com) or to phone me at 979-571-0603. Not only can we remove the post, we can also ban the user, that users e-mail address, and the IP address of the computer that the post was made from.

I am so sorry that this happened and apologize to all of my friends here at The Quilt and Needle forum.

I only saw the one Jess and I alerted it to you straight away - I noticed that Cindy was also an administrator and telephoned her to see if she had managed to remove it and it was then that she told me that there were 2 such spam posts. It is unfortunate that there are people out there like that but this goes on all the time and even if you have a good spam filter they still manage to get in!

Yep, Miss Cindy saved the day and took care of that stuff before my pretty little eyes even opened. Way to go Cindy!

You girls were really quick - I never saw a thing.  It's most frustrating when spam comes in - good job girls! :)

"awwww shucks, ma'am, just doing my job, much obliged to ya" she says as she blows the smoke away from her trusty ole side-kick, Bessie, the 44 Magnum . . . or whatever they used to say in those old westerns ;) :laugh:
