Thanks to everyone that has emailed the moderators when you see a spam post.  I do not know what has happened, but we are getting a lot of them since last night.  Hopefully Phil or one of the more computer savvy moderators will have a handle on this shortly.  We do not like these post anymore than the rest of ya'll.  Jack

Rather than leave, if you suspect they are getting you email address here, go into your profile settings and select to hide your email address.  That way you can still participate in the forum and receive reply notifications but your email isn't publicly visible.

I also belong to 3 Yahoo bus groups (GMC, All-Busnuts, and MCI-Busnuts) but rarely get any spam at my email address.  Maybee, I am just lucky??   Jack

Luvrbus,

I don't blame you for leaving, however, on this board, no one can harvest your email address unless they are a registered member.
Your email address isn't accessible by non members. That's one thing we had to work on when the new board first started up.

If you look at some of your emails, especially the forwards, you'll find that your friends and buddies normally use the "cc" to send with which shows all of the email addresses that an email is forwarded to.
If you will instruct and help your friends learn to use "BCC" (Blind Copy), you'll end up with a lot fewer problems.

Personally, I don't give out my secure address to people until I know that they are secure enough to not send forwards all day long. In 2 years, I've had a total of 6 spam emails which were probably generated by computers just putting numbers and letters together.

Good Luck to you.

I just checked, it is hidden to the public.  It will still show it to you.

I just sent an urgent email to Phil.  I'm sure he will be banning those new spammer accounts and their IP's very soon.  I suspect they are all the same person due to the timing.

Hi Guy's,

I'm not sure it's only here... Almost everybody I have asked today is having the same problem with spam. And none are on this bbs.

I think it's the time of year and the bad economy to lead these criminals to prey on us.

The moderators here made a good judgement call by approving all new members, belonging to 2 Prevost boards this was the easiest board to join I found and yes I did receive 6 spams today so I followed the advice given to Luvrbus hiding my E mail address from the public  Be Safe
