    Are you getting tired of being SPAMMED by this site??

    I know I am and due to my work here I get them twice.

    After a lengthy conversation with the site owner we have implemented a two question questionnaire. It is located in your profile. All you need to do is click on Settings (top right of the page) then to Edit Profile and answer them.

    What good will that do??

    Penton will split you off from receiving commercial stuff when you should get residential and so on. This way you don't get both or more spam than you should receive. Right now it's all open season.

    I hope this makes sense. It's a part of life, you are going to get email from our owner but this way you can help them zero in on what it is that you do so you only get stuff they think you may want to read....

    What I am getting tired of is subtle spam posts. Paid product advocates, affiliate marketing spam, link building and such. Their assignment maybe to link to sites, blogs or even YouTube videos and they're getting paid on the views their posts bring. I think we definitely need probational posting privilege where the first few posts are screened by a moderator.

    uh...any of the moderators at their leisure or Mike19? They could wait in "awaiting moderator approval" status for a few days lol.

    The most common email I get daily.

    How do I post on this site?

    The second most common email I get daily.

    Why can't I register?

    Average number of email to me? 200 a day.
    Average number of email I must reply or investigate? 50 a day.
    Who is the only one that can do this and approve registrations and approve moderate post? I'll give you three guesses and the first two don't count.
