Good Morning everyone. I would like to know you policy on spam. It hasn't been repeatedly spam but I just received an pvt msg from someone saying "Hi" in Spanish. So when I opened it through my email address, is was junk mail to a dating website. The person's name that shows up is Lara Henderson. Username: laragd656 and says registered user since 11/15/2017.

Has this been a problem with anyone? Thanks.

I don't wish to be getting any kind of msgs like this.

Also got a private message:

Yes, see. I'm hoping that I didn't sign up to come back to dpchallenge and all of a sudden start getting SPAM msgs like this. I never had this problem before I left. I hope admin looks into this stuff or those in control of the servers in some way or another.

Maybe SC can fix some settings...?

I got an add for a dating site from tamikojp907 today.

But it was the first spam I ever got via dpc. I'm just hoping this won't happen repeatedly

Yes. Same here. It seems like it went out today to some people. And yes, I also hope that it doesn't happen repeatedly.

I see I have one too. Hola from kristinhh364. I won't touch it.
11/15/2017 07:11:22 AM · #8
Mine says ..... hola

It seems that some individuals/company has set up a chain mail...I know SC will deal with this...

Take screen shots/get their user name of the senders so they will know who to boot out!!!

Good God donít open the links!!! Could be a Trojan, virus, worm...or whatever...

It looks like there will need to be a vetting system put into place so someone canít just register and start causing mayhem!!! Sad that we might have to do that...

Most of the sites that Iíve recently joined ask a few questions about photography and they checked me out...kind of like an interview process..

I see there is no captcha on the registration page. It's easy to bot-create accounts here. Can I help in any way?
11/15/2017 09:27:52 AM · #23
I got one as did LoVi.
11/15/2017 09:32:56 AM · #24
