Well passive aggressive much? Sorry, not going to keep me from posting.

I was merely insinuating that I have gotten a lot (not a problem, just delete it) PM spam & was wondering if anyone else was experiencing the same thing ... I wasn't even insulting anyone (& am even trying to make a conciliatory effort to make sure my posts don't read offensively ) ... Now can we ease move past that whole past issue ... Geeze!

I was not the only one complaining but yes it is slightly annoying & I was just Agreeing with others

Just my two cents.
I'm not just "complaining" and I DID give suggestions!!! And you know what, for some of us it IS hard to do the **** captchas!! I have to refresh several times before I get one I can read and even then I have a difficult time with it. And before you start poking fun and claiming that I'm just complaining for the sake of complaining and it really isn't that hard to do the captchas, I have symptoms from my mental illnesses which make it difficult for me to do the **** things.


It took 5 refreshes for me to find a legible one.

Pretty sure this was just a suggestion, not a complaint.... People really do like to nitpick certain people!

Ditto. I think the idea of a required intro post and a captcha on that post is a great one.

Then I wasn't talking about you, was I?

I can't see the letters if there's too much noise. I just refresh it til I can. I'd rather it inconvenience me than spam inconvenience all the mods.

Two suggestions that I made on page 2.



3 reloads and two messed up attempts this time.

On the PM Spam - if you get it, report it and then go ahead and delete it. We don't have access to people's inboxes to delete/monitor spam anyway. If we get a reported PM, we get an email text of the PM and a link to the sender's profile. From there, we can ban the user.

Ironically, the captcha for this post was this:

Meh. It is what it is. At least there is an option to refresh the captcha lol.

I do think it would be easier if it went away after a member had X amount of posts, but I don't know if that's even an option.

Also, when I talked about it being easy, it was in regards to on the phone, you don't have to do the extra 5 steps she made it seem like you do. Its as easy as on the computer.
