    Spam

    there has been a bunch of spam posters in the last couple of days. Spam is advertisements for sale items posted on the discussion boards for anything from fishing stuff to porno sites. Please help the adminstrator and moderators keep Fishin.com clean and usable for its intended purpose.

    If you come accross any spam postings, please hit the ALERT button (the red trianble with the exclamation point in the grey bar) and let us know what is happening. a moderator will remove the unwanted item as soon as we can.

    Thanks for the help

    Wormin, I am glad to hear it, that means we are getting rid of most of it before too many people see it. We have gotten a couple of alerts and I have delete at least eight spammers in the last two days. Three of them have been for porno sites (I didn't even peek, I just went by the titlles).

    Way to Go, If I want SPAM or PORN, I think I can find it on the web. Thanks for keeping the site free...................

    PS, I'm trying to get my 8 year old grandson into in fishing and have introduced him to this web site. So thanks, and let's all help to keep it clean for the children...

    I was the first to reply to one of the spammers on the tournament board. I missed the red exclamation point. However, I will be sure to "punch" it in the future. Thanks for cleaning the site up.

    Re: Spam

    I've reported several on this site. Each time the mods cleaned it up in minutes. Thanks to the mods for doing a great job in all areas and not just in this one. But special thanks for keeping the board clean and safer by blocking them to begin with.

    Keep in mind, (as I understand it) its ok to recommend a product or service if you feel the need so we don't want to go over board with the reporting. unsolicited Self promotion is not allowed. You can buy ads for that and fishin.com will be glad to make a spot for you. Fishin.com can correct me if I am wrong but I thought it might be a good time for a refresher on the rule.

    To clarify again. It is my fault that fishfinder general is posting here. I have not had time to create a place in the reports section for him to post. Apologies to all.
