and her Hubby who, after many hours I'm sure, cleared our forum of all the spammers who had joined! There were over 2 or 3,000 of them! Now it will be more manageable and they've given me a tool to help me keep the board clean of spam!!

Thanks so much you two!! They live in Sweden...I love the internet! :)

:oops: Awww, it 'twas nuttin'. It felt really good to see the porn, drug and cigarette ads go bye-bye! I really felt like I accomplished something yesterday. We had the most fun trying to think up search words to look for in their e-mail and website addresses. I can't remember what our first search word was, but we got rid of 174 bogus members with it.

Now to get up those smilies that I promised months ago...

That's so weird! I just talked to someone yesterday about the spammer thing here and they said there was some kind of program or "bot".

And here you are... already done!

Thanks Mr. and Mrs. Sandykins!!!!

We could probably have a contest as to how many of which search word you had to use!! It got to where it was getting easy to tell if a topic was spam. I believe that if it happens again (knock on wood), I take the time to get the name and other info and pass it on instead of just delting it.

Hugs Pam

I know...I'm working on deleting them now. Makes no sense for someone to do that but trying to explain it is like :deadhorse:

Wow! I didn't notice! :bigeyes: :high5:
Those are cool! Thanks for the avatar compliment. I'm looking for something to add to my signature that is mouse-related, too. I should come up with something in a day or 2. :wink:
Thanks Sandykins!!!! :D
