    What's the thinking behind that? Is it that they think the forums and chatrooms will be unmonitored today?

      Some people can spam, without knowing that they are spamming.
      What some people think is spam, might have a totally different meaning to someone else.

      For example. I enjoy eating kentucky fried chicken.
      Or, is this spam. I recommend eating at kentucky fried chicken
      Spam. kentucky fried chicken dot com. or. KFC dot com.

      I picked that, because I don't really care for it. It's greasy, and you don't get what you pay for. I went into one once, and there was only one guy doing everything. needless to say, I walked out of there and went to the restaraunt next door.

    I have a donation ad at another website. I say in the ad that I do not give out my personal information, and I do not want to receive business deals or checks. Only Pay Pal donations.

    I swear I get 10 emails a day from companies trying to get me to sign on to their money making schemes. People wanting my full contact information, even though I send them an email telling them I don't do that, it just opens me up for 10 more.

    I don't mind someone spamming a link to their hub. but, when someone sends you 10 emails a week from the same company using a different name. That's irritating. I consider that spam.

    I guess when you place yourself an a website that can be viewed by millions of people. You set yourself up for it. I'll never place an ad on that site again. I'll tell you that.
