    Angry Banning Members for Spamming

    Dear members,

    We have had some individuals who have starting signing up for a user ID and spamming on this site. Please read the following:

    Members: Most of the spamming has been posted in this general chit chat forum. Spammer accounts are being banned and threads deleted. If you see an out of character thread, please do not click on any links within the post. We will ban the member, delete the thread, as well as block the IP address from which it came. Thank you for your patience through these times.

    Spammers: Spam is not welcome on this site. If you attempt to place spam anywhere on Crochet Talk - you will be banned and blocked. Spamming takes away from the pleasure of the forum and we ask that you NOT spam here.

    Thank you,
    Barbara G.

    Hello,

    We have recently had a few spam posts lately, so I wanted to bump this back to the top of the thread. Please read the original message if you have not done so.

    Thank you!

    Spamming is joining the community just to promote your own product or cause. Only for the purpose of advertising, or causing discord (in some situations).

    Thank you giving the definition. I thought spamming was putting a "virus" on a computer. Shows you how much I know......
