    Trust me, none of us like to wake up to spam with our morning coffee. Banning the spammer is easy. One stroke and he’s gone. Getting rid of the spam posts is time consuming. They have to be labeled as spam, which eliminates them, one by one.

    Refreshing the page will show you progress as we slog our way through the spam.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Yeah,

    I spent my entire train ride to work deleting this crap. And some time on the platform prior. Slow going for sure, and not how I wanted to spend my trip in.

    Thanks – I appreciate your efforts on this.  I think most of us do.  You’ll get some grumbling, but we are glad you are at work – and grateful.

    I would remind everyone that our mods are volunteers – they arent making loads of cash or getting benefits for this.  They do it because they give a damn about JPR and its members.  So, let’s give them some respect and some thanks for what they do.

    Give em some love and a K & R.

    Thanks, ladies and gentlemen (and Barbarians!) – without you doing what you do, I couldn’t do what I do.

    I’m blocked from entering information on this blog. I’m not the spammer. I’m just trying to post this article.

    It seems to be fine after I entered my email & the addition.

      Hopefully what happened this morning won’t happen again. Our spam software is now more aggressive. The downside.. this means some members will get caught in it. As of 5 minutes ago, I whitelisted all the members who were caught.

      If you do get caught, use the contact form. Give your email address and username.

    Actually, I think spam is pretty good stuff if fried crispy.

    Spam and hash browns and eggs. Had lots of it as a kid. Wife hates it. So I don’t get any anymore cause she ribs the shit outta me if I do.

    I moved this post to Announcements for greater visibility.

      Good idea to move this to announcements, OB… I found it here AT LAST.

      I also didn’t know about whitelisting until nvwino advised me yesterday. As a geek, I make a better respiratory therapist than a moderator!

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...
