    Spamming can also be posting the same message over and over again, even though it is a little different. It becomes bothersome in the forums and takes away from the "good feeling of community within the forum."

    Usually, spam will be posting for advertisements and the person signing up will not be there for the purpose of being a real "member" of the group. Hope this helps in understanding!

    Just yesterday when I opened may mail and click on this site a new friend request came up, being new I click on it and some kind of Hot-Girl's or Meet Hot Girls came up. I failed to get the name but I have not gotten any other mail of that type as of yet on my regular account.

    That's what I figured it was after I realized I was not logged into your site.

    Did you have a friend request here on Crochet Talk that did that, or in your email? I have not had any problems with accepting friend requests and the administrator keeps everything updated on site with upgrades and all.

    Ok - I just reread and saw that you were not logged into the site. Sometimes people get "pinged" which is where their computer gets randomly hit by advertisements, or other stuff. I have AVG professional and have used it for years. I once in a while will have a ping that gets blocked from AVG. They also have a free version as well - I have used it for over 10 years with no problems at all.
