They must be really kinky as well. We got 1 Fox 1 horse 1 Cake (with cross eyes I might add very becoming!) Wonder how many other animals or objects can they like ? Ok I'll add 1 Furry little feline (cuddly at that) ;-)
Get similar from various sources on a fairly regular basis. Be very careful with these messages as they can be from Spammers or Phishers, simply looking to obtain your personal details. Best to delete them and block sender if you have this facility.
I get those all the time too. I just delete them. Usually they are written in broken English and the font is real big. They look like they send out a gazillion of them at a time, they just have that 'feel' to them.
Hey everyone, I've got a few of those emails lately, too. I wanted to make sure that you all please click that cute, little this mssage is spam link at the bottom of the spam emails that you're unfortunately getting through HubPages so that we can take care of the accounts that are sending them out.
Thanks Ryan . Never actually opened email in full window mode until you pointed it out. (who reads those ads at the bottom of emails anyway) Have duly noted your comment and reported spam as requested.
Hey, thanks Ryan! That's a cool little trick. I always mark these spam emails as such in my email account, but have never thought to look down and see the button you describe.
For what it's worth... Ag, I saw you on Hub Pages and thought both your little fox and your accent were adorable. Will you be my friend? Please? I am not a spammer. I promise. A maniac, perhaps. But definitely not a spammer.
I never noticed the link either... I just open them on my BlackBerry and delete after reading the first line or less. Even when I use the computer to check my email, I've never thought to scroll to the bottom to check for a spam button... :-/
Hey I get mails from Hubpages only when someone publishes a Hub or when someone comments on my Hub but never did I get these kinds of mail. That is bad. At least I will get a feeling that I am able to attract women through my Hubs.
Now, now boys, no fighting. Ag and I have been pals for ages. We joined HP round about the same time. He's always been a gentleman and I do so admire that in a man. But Mr. Hairy, you are a welcome addition to our crew, too. There is no denying your raw masculine appeal. Honestly, if I could put the both of you together you would be the perfect male specimen. (Please don't tell the other perfect male specimens around here -- they know who they are).
I've gotten those "spammish" seeming ones, but I've also recently received more that don't seem like spam, and instead seem more personal. What they've done, though, is e.mail, rather than commenting on the Hub. It may have been innocent (one may have had something the person wouldn't want post online), but it did occur to me it could be someone trying to get my (or anyone's) e.mail address (if I responded).
Have other people been getting more of those too? (Or maybe the ones I got were actually legitimate?)
Lisa, I do hear what you are saying. It is my own opinion that the emails are too similar in wording and construction to be by individuals. I am also of the opinion that it is better to get to know the Hubber that wishes to befriend you before you hand over your private email address. I feel to do otherwise is foolhardy and only asking for spamming or worse ! Hubpages I feel has designed this well, so it would be silly for anyone not to take advantage of Hubpages safety nets.
So last week I received an e-mail from a college student asking if I would be interested in showcasing a paper that he wrote. In responses to him I advised him I would use his article but include my own...
Is there a possibility we could have a new feature that would only allow Hubpage members with profiles to send emails? I think this might cut down on the amount of spam we are currently receiving from unverified...
Trying to see if I understand this correctly. The trackers only work from outside of HP, correct? So if I have a new affiliate tracker on my profile page or in a hub, it's worthless to me, right? And if I link from one...
