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.
ironically, most of my Hub mail goes to the spamfolder
I have never understood why. If I change the settings, I might get penis enlargement spam ads though...so I guess I'll just have to contend ith the way things are....
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, then they could post anywhere. I think this would deter a lot of the people who...

Any chance that perhaps a few Hubbers from each of the timezones around the world (if possible) could be given the power to suspend accounts and delete posts of spammers?Not to get involved in any moderation of the site, but to be able to take out the trash of 'beyond a shadow of a doubt' spam...

This might be my last forum post because I am tired. I can't be wasting my time beating a dead horse.HP is a business and they need to start treating their business more seriously. They need a task force to sit and brain storm about how to keep spammers out in the first place.I know that I have...

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 completely, but it would cut down on the spam a bit.

Usually the first thing I do when I log on here is to check out the 'New' hubs to see what's going on. I also usually end up flagging spammy hubs along the way. The thing is that the spammers seem to be following the rules, so I'm not even really sure whether to flag them anymore or...

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? They would still be allowed to read to their heart's content, but they would need...
