Unsolicited, unpaid ads (spam)

Postby Wilberforce » Sun May 03, 2009 10:23 am

Occasionally, a new sign-up will immediately post spam. We are not a free advertising site!
If you wish to pay for your ads, fine. Then please contact Mary Rozenberg. We welcome
certain types of paid advertising

An unsolicited, unpaid ad (spam) will be deleted as soon as we find it. Poster may be blocked also.
All posts from new members now must go through moderation.

Thank you

Even if a newly signed-up poster has a relevant, on-topic comment, I am sorry that we cannot accept
any ads nor links. I do not have the time to run domain checks to see if their site is legitimate or not.
That's if the link works at all. If the link does not work, it will be treated as a dead link, and will be
deleted altogether. Until further notice, only links from long-time or trusted members can be approved.

Your comment, however, is welcome.

Thank You

We have gotten a lot of new sign-ups, who post advertisements which are irrelevant to our mission;

Don't Bother! Your post will be deleted. Please don't waste our time and yours.

This holds especially true for certain people selling wood stoves! :lol:

Why should we provide free advertising space for something that we are against?

There is a new zero-tolerance policy on spam. If your post is deemed to consist of spam,
your account might be deactivated without warning.

As of now, this board is closed to new members, due to a relentless spam attack which had occurred on Nov 16.

It is possible that I may re-open the board, but it will no longer be via user self-registration. Instead, registration may take the form of administrator-approved permission. We will see.

Do not try to post a supportive comment and then sneak a spam-link into your signature. The entire post will be deleted.
• The Surgeon General has determined that there is no safe level of exposure to ambient smoke!

• If you smell even a subtle odor of smoke, you are being exposed to poisonous and carcinogenic chemical compounds!

• Even a brief exposure to smoke raises blood pressure, (no matter what your state of health) and can cause blood clotting, stroke, or heart attack in vulnerable people. Even children experience elevated blood pressure when exposed to smoke!

• Since smoke drastically weakens the lungs' immune system, avoiding smoke is one of the best ways to prevent colds, flu, bronchitis, or risk of an even more serious respiratory illness, such as pneumonia or tuberculosis! Does your child have the flu? Chances are they have been exposed to ambient smoke!
