Is it just me, or are other getting sick of the Porn sites that is being allowed to register as mermbers. I can live with all of the non- offensive sites, such as the weight loss, or muscle building sites, that are frequently signing up. All of this is to TRY to boost their site’s rankings in the Search Engines -and it certainly doesn’t hurt LJ’s membership stats – but I really do take offense to the blatant Porn advertisements. Today there were at least 25 pictures of a topless woman posted to promote their site. Possibly someone needs to start thinking about having some Moderators to control some of the stuff that is getting on our LumberJocks site. I would volunteer to assist in any way that I can. Let me know if I’m alone in this, or do any of you agree with me.

I am not a prude, I just think there is a time and place for everything – and our woodworking Forum is certainly not the place – I often view the site with my wife and grandchildren present and I’d hate to have to stop visiting because of this nonsense!

Too much of that trash out there. Those sites are parasites.

they’re also 99.9% robots, not real people taking the time to sign up.

How come I never get to see this stuff? Could it be I use Firefox instead of IE and have the Ad Block Plus extension installed?

This is bad news. It is also strange because one of my retired friends got a notice from LJ’s saying that he had to wait 24 hrs. after he signed up as a new member before he could post anything. Evidently someone was checking him out so how did this crap get admitted?

You won’t see any of it, unless you are one of the people that welcomes new members to the Forum. I happen to be one and it is offensive.

Lee,

These are not posts which require the waiting period. They are new user profiles.

Some of them are 7 hours old. Not much attention to it I guess.
