Something I've noticed A LOT of recently is the amount of spam. Why is it so abundant? Whenever I travel to other forums there is little to no spam. So why this one? For example, I just counted 6 blogs before mine all about selling things from super fruits to kitchen cabinets. What's going on??

Some sites attract more spammers and scammers than other sites, unfortunately.

What I don't understand is why we can't delete the e-mail from spammers and scammers? The function keys will show you, you deleted it......but no it is ALL still there. Is this the same for everyone? Or am I doing something wrong?

I also can't get the "accept friends" function to work either?? When I do, I will accept you Palms (just to let you know, I'm not trying to be rude or anything).

Well, you could ask Kate_H, but it seems she hasn't been on for almost two weeks. Where could she have gone when she has a forum to run?? Not trying to be rude, but I feel like this forum is falling apart...

Charkattack is the Community Manager not Kate.
Whether Charkattack IS a community manager is debatable.

I try to delete the spam in the blogs or elsewhere as soon as I can when I get on line. I also delete their accounts. They just come back later with some other name. I have tried to get the powers that be to use some other kind of filter, but they ignore my pleas. I will delete the spam as soon as I see it, but I can't be on here 24 hours a day.

Witt it can be a full time job. I'm on another site also and the spammers are really bad there too. I know the moderators there spend a lot of time trying to take care of spammers. Thanks to you and the other moderators who do such an awesome job.
