    Good Day sugz

    The spammers are an inconvenience. But let me tell you, overall, I find the interaction on this section a lot more positive and fun than what passes for discourse in the "blardy" forums. I flag the call girl sites and the questions that are wildly inappropriate for polite company. Its slightly disheartening sometimes, I know, they spring up like weeds that are immune to any and all kinds of weed killer formulas.

    Hang in there. I don't recommend trying the forums if you haven't already done so. But if you do venture toward that territory, please approach with caution for that domain is filled with sharks and trolls!!

    Good Luck!

    hi smile
    yes i flag the profiles all the time, i just get annoyed these days and i guess i have developed a short fuse in the past week, but no biggie. i also find the answers section great value, i have found that certain topics draw my brain into action and somehow realise i know a lot of answers that can help others in some way. i love answering on here.. as for asking.. not a lot, i'm not big on asking questions even in real life..  lol
    i have ventured to the forums, with me 'saying it how i see it' quite often get myself into trouble hehe
    but i don't care if i do.. i voice opinions and the forums are just that.. people giving 'their' opinion, its what we al others do with those opinions and ocmments as to wether we fire up or not.. i totally detest spam to a major degree and i know there are ways to permanently stop them, it's a matter of hp actually listening and doing something about it. stuff a few dollars here an there that i tmight earn them some money.. they will lose a lot of people from this section if it gets a lot worse. i'm an extremely patient person.. (normally) and can tollerate more than most of the people i know, but spammers.. i'd like to obliterate them indefinately...
    weed killer... nah weeds grow back.. maybe we can send them a little computer injection.. i know of some really nice hidden ones which i dare not access on MY computer.. smile the day i do.. i probably have completely lost it and gone crazy..
    not a likely result for this kid.

    maybe i will write a hub on how to block them permanently.. fortunatley i know how.. i just wish hp did or if they do already.. would do something about it!

    I have never encountered the spammers. I guess it's because I avoid the forums.
