Re: I am getting Spam Messages

My last 8 private messages were all spam. Face it. This forum system is dead since the new SEW redesign. This used to be the place to discuss difficult search technology issues, but that is so over.

Here's the spam:

Re: I am getting Spam Messages

Re: I am getting Spam Messages

Please toally disable private messaging for both members and nonmembers. If members need to contact each other, let them go thru signature links and contact them from their websites.

Too many spam messages coming .... Somebody will sure hit spam buttons in their email accounts.
