    Please Stop The Spam Epidemic.

    the spam on here is getting to be more intrusive than the ads on tv.

    cant it be stopped, and if not why not?

    if these spam things have to actually register with the site cant you put one of those fuzzy letter things that have to be read and copied before registering?

    Agree, it's doing my head in. And my finger, from continually reporting the bastards.

    Got given a hard time for reporting spam last time so I do not bother anymore. I agree though it is getting out of hand.

    They have a verification here. Spam will always be a problem and can't be stopped totally. it means the site is a high ranking site being targeted by spammers. That means TD is worth something. Good for da' Dog!

    rarely see it on other fora, or at least not to the extent that it seems to be appearing here.

    Well any idea why adblocker is playing up then ?

    I had assumed DD regularly changed the file names of all his adds by one digit, so all blocked ads would show up again ?

    Krist on a Kracker, you make Ant look like Wozniak!

    Put http://teakdoor.com/banners/* into your custom filters and make sure your filter subscription is up to date.

    You probably want to consider NoScript too if you don't already use it.

    Is that an addon or a programme.

    On second thoughts, that was a very unnecessary and hurtful insult !

    Read carefully, make sure the filter is added to your custom filters, not the default.

    What browser are you using in your efforts to take us back 10 years?




    Edit: you have my email addy, contact me and I'll post pics to walk you through the process.
