I have noticed that about 40% of the new profiles are spammers. I have also talked to Ms Debbie about this. I know they are aware of it. My suggestion would be to have some of us that greet new members submit a list to Debbie or Martin with product names that could be blocked at sign up. If you look at all of the sign ups each day, there are only about 8 or 10 products that regularly show up. It wouldnt be hard to create a block list for these product names. The names have nothing to do with woodworking so there wouldnt be any problems with our members. Will have to see what Martin does. I am on other websites, and LJ is the only one that I see this problem with so not sure what the others use.
