Carol, I started a new post to alert members to the danger of this particular spammer.
A couple days ago there she was again, and once again I had trouble deleting her posts
(and there were a string of them). But I caught some kind of virus while deleting which
has never happened before.
I'm guessing that through the process of deleting her, I must have come too close to
her link or something....now she's back again with a whole string of them and she put
them right under Shirley's post titled: THIS IS NOT THE PLACE FOR YOUR SPAM!
So this spammer is now ticked and targeting this forum. I need time to figure out how
to handle this....not wanting to be off line again for a few days. After being infected
last time, I could only get online for a short while before my laptop went wonky.
This particular spammer does this for pure spite. Unlike some who want to advertise their
product, this one does it just to spread a virus.....and it's a real pesky one. Wish I were
more computer literate.
As moderator, we don't have the ability to permanently block someone from membership....
at least not that I know of. This is different from other groups I moderate, where we
can simply block them from ever trying again. I would love to ask the MP Co. for help,
but don't want to call us to their attention or be a problem....since I'm just glad they
allow our forum to continue....if you get my drift ; ).
