    What's the prevalence of Hubbers recieving sapm in fan message posts? I had a slew a couple days ago, including one of at least 500 words.

    Just wondering. smile

    First time for me a couple of days ago...  I guess because it doesn't happen often, it doesn't bother me.

    But, I've had a few doozies in my comments box on occasion.  Religion can be inspiring at times.  LOL

    I just got the worst one EVER by this creep "guessmyname" that is running around the forums right now.

    Hope "it" is banned!  yuk.

    OK, sometimes it happens more than others.

    I would never have thought  to spam in a fan club posting. Always something new here.

    Thanks! smile

      Patty! I've had a couple of them over the past month or so but Angelic Stephanie left some 'spam-a-roni' on my fan mail two days ago. It seems so futile to go to all that hassle. Don't they know that the 'c**p' will be denied right away? I will never understand all this.
      regards Zsuzsy

        One was particularly cheeky - stated that they were posting to all their fan club members, and I was not even a fan. Probably won't consider so being,now. LOL

        Ha ha - Everyone rated over 85 or so, watch out! LOL smile

    Judging by the expert hubbers posting, getting spam in your fan mail is a sign of success!

    Ah, I wish...!!

    That's what I was thinking?   Maybe they spam the best people.   None for me.

      Well, DJ, your Hubs are pretty entertaining, imo. You may be deluged with spam fan club messages very soon. smile

      But, some may think they will get more exposer on the fan clubs top 20 scoring hubbers' - like a sales gimmick, do you think?

    Imagine me with my tail between my legs....

    After reading several of the posts on this string, I have to guess that I am at least one of the offending parties. I had an idea recently to write a chapter of my novel as a work in progress. I worked in a museum several years ago where they had a house they were restoring and presented it as a work in progress, so people could come back year after year and see the restoration in the works. That was what inspired me to do this.

    So I went through the list of sites that have joined my fanclub and whose fanclub I have joined. I didn't think that I was spamming, but maybe that's because spamming is a subjective term. What is considered spam to one person may not be to someone else. I should note, in support of that theory, that I have received several rather supportive emails from people who liked the idea. I perhaps naively thought that people would appreciate that I was re-visting their sites, since I suspect that a lot of people never go back after the initial visit.

    If I have somehow offended someone, I beg forgiveness and pledge not to make the same mistake again.

    Nope, nada, nothin'.

    I've had a couple of insane comments, but that was a couple of months ago, I just denied them.

    Jim Henry, haven't seen any of your 'work in progress'....can't you publish it as a hub?

      It's's the link: … n-Progress

      I'm actually having a great deal of fun with this. As you'll see when you read about my experiment, I have gotten my evil villain into a mess and he absolutely has to get out. I know how I got him into it, but he can't leave the way he came.

      Since I haven't got a conception how I'm going to get him out, I'm sort of winging it, and that's where the fun is. It's exciting to write a piece and experience the thrill of "learning" something just as if I were a first-time reader.
