Due to some pathetic jerks who are spamming our board with pornographic website links and spam messages, there will be no new members allowed to register until all the spammers have been banned.  If the spamming continues, this board will be closed to all but current members unless you are personally nominated for membership by a current member in good standing.  I'm sorry we have to do this, but we cannot allow these jerks to continue to spam our board with unacceptable messages. :police:

It's Shirley and Anne Marie and Jaina and the moderators that have been keeping it clean. I'm just trailing behind them, trying to make their jobs a little less stressful!  Thanks, Gals!

They were even sneaky enough to insert bogus "report this to a moderator" links which spoofed email addresses.  After I clicked on one of those links, I got a nasty email from them.

I'm trying to ban all of them from the board, now.  Once they are gone, they can't post anymore.  They will have to take their smut and their infantile, sick personalities somewhere else.  They are not welcome here.

I haven't come across any spam porn messages or links here yet, but I won't have to worry about it as long as you and the moderators are going to great lengths to keep those sickos off the board.

Thanks so much Verla! I'm feelin' a little extra sensitive about this subject matter this summer -- ever since I discovered my 10 yo son and his friend had been googling um... questionable websites.

Thanks for keeping this a great place to visit!

This situation reminds me of a time 3 years ago when I wanted to sew some clothes for my nieces' historical dolls, and I figured the internet would guide me to patterns for same. I Googled some phrase like "American Girl doll clothes patterns" and the top three or four Google-suggested links all led to explicit porn photos. The porn sites actually had my entire Googled phrase as a tiny meta-tag, or whatever you call those things that Google picks up to do your search for you.
I warned everybody I knew with American Girl dolls to be careful on the net.
And the warning still goes, I expect, for searches kids might do relating to popular games and toys.

Thank you, moderators. I've yet to see (and hope never to) this garbage.
I wish there were laws to deal with this. Oy!
