Lumber jocks is telling me that my internet provider is marked as spam on my mobile phone and won’t let me sign in.I can log on at my home computer but I still don’t understand why my phone was marked as spam.Why is that and how can it be fixed?The only reason I can think of is because I recommended certain brands of tools in forum questions,and I list my areas of expertise on my home page profile,but it seems like a lot of people do the same thing just through an honest opinion.Please reply

Nobody goes through the trouble of identifying your IP because you have recommended tools, especially since you’re only being blocked on your phone.

Send a message to Cricket and see if their folks can figure it out. Be sure to note your carrier.

Has this always been the case or is this new?

Perhaps it is because of the Patriot act and the fact that your logging in from a Canadian cell carrier—those Canadians are known to be dangerous.

It just happened to me when I tried logging in about two hours ago, but I had already logged in from my phone a couple times this morning and I had no problems.I have never had a problem logging in with my phone until now,and my carrier is wind mobile in Ontario Canada.

I sent an email through the websites “contact” section and I will contact Cricket now.

Thanks Charles

Yes yes here it comes,lets all poke fun with the Canadian and insult his igloo.Hahahaha

I can check on it but the spam prevention is automated.

Boy: (Fellow Ontarian ;-}

No. This has not happened to me, nor has the Spam interfered with anything I do on here.

With All Due Respect. (NOT because I’m Canadian, or Dangerous, and My $500,000.00 Igloo is working just fine, thank you…LOL…)

I’m not sure how well the ”Automated Spam Prevention” is working. Just prior to coming back on here I thought I’d check it out. (Sept. 05/14)

You have to go to the “Pulse Page”, click on “profiles” to get all of the New Profiles only, to show.

There are about 30 per page. I clicked on about 20 of them. 11 of them where Spam. I Snipped a number of them, 3 of them are below. I just did the same today but just one. It was also Spam. It’s also below (muslimlame996)

I did the same on ”Refurbers” directly from the Front Page. I believe there’s another “Forum Topic” going on Refurbers. I MIGHT Post the reults in there. GOOD GRIEF!

Your welcome “Boy”. Among other things that are going wrong on here it was just a statement that this so called ”Automated Spam Prevention” is NOT working.

In my Opinion YOU have a legitimate concern. I doubt that you’ll get an answer that goes any further than the one you have already.

Perhaps the best example of that is “Refurbers” AND The “Garden Site” A “Statement was made last February that a “System” was put into place (“Automated Spam Prevention”) that would prevent any further SPAM, not totally but the Vast Majority of it.

I’ve been doing a lot of Investigating into MANY things that are going WRONG on here. ”Automated Spam Prevention”? Not from what I’ve seen! If anything, it’s Worse.

This is one of about 5 Pages I went through of “New Members” one by one from ” Refurbers” on Oct. 21/14. They are all the same on BOTH Sites. It appears to be not quite as bad on here but they are still “Loading On.”

SOMETHING is seriously WRONG Here and it’s NOT just the Spam.
