i hate to see my email crowded with spams messages. i mark them as junk but they continue to arrive and arrive and arrive ...brrrrrrr.Doesn't anybody know how to escape?
Gmail is great for filtering your spam email, they catch most of it.
Yes I agree, gmail is very good.I have recently made an account in gmail but my old account is with yahoo
I have an email account that gets no spam whatsoever.
That's because I don't give it out. I sign up for sites I trust (photobucket, squidoo, hubpages, and some affiliates).
There really is no escape. Spammers usually work together and pass around other people's emails to other spammers. Just a vicious circle.
Never leave comments on other peoples' blogs you don't know because usually it ask for your email and the owner of that blog might end up selling your email to spammers.

The ones I hate are those that have the dates like: 08/14/36 or 08/14/38 when today is 08/12/09 and always about 100 of these a day! Of course they end up in the spam folder, but to find those that somehow end up in the spam folder that I want to see I have to go through the spam folder.
You would think with technology today that any decent email provider would be able to detect these types of email and disallow them.

I have been seeing a lot of forum spam lately. I think it could be *greatly* reduced by only allowing new sign-ups to post under the help section until they've published one hub. After they've published their first hub,...

Anyone else still getting hit with the spam comments? I'm still averaging 2 or 3 a day and it shows no sign of letting up.

all the people I see spamming the forums are signing up long enough to post on the forum but aren't writing any hubs. So ... I was thinking. Why not require three hubs from a person before they can post in the forums?...

Title says it all, really. Why not prevent people from posting to the forums unless they've written at least one hub? Most of these spammers don't have a hub to their name. It wouldn't sort the problem out...

I suggest that HP prevent any registered user from posting a new topic to the forums if they have no hubs. They can comment but not start new threads.Most forums that I use have this restriction in place.
