Private Message for Building Plans

Now I am getting SPAM by private message. This morning I had one for somebody that had 1, 600 plans for sale.

I've gotten the same type of private message a couple of times in the last month or so. The latest one I got was at Lumberjocks and the first one may well have been here, I just can't remember for sure. It would take a lot for me to click on a link in an unsolicited PM as I find the delete prompt far more useful for that type of message.

Radusonea has been banned:

please be specific with the name and report it
and that screen name can be banned for life manually.
but - if it is a "bot" generated spam like WoodWork - they change
just a character or two and become a totally new person and continue
with their spam advertising.
just ignore it - don't open it - and report it.

And I have some nice beachfront property in El Paso, Texas that is a great bargain.

George, a friend worked at Miami International airport and saw snow! It would get about four feet from the ground and melt.

Same has happened here in Huntington Beach, at least 30 years ago.

I’ve had the same problem at lumberjocks too. I’ve reached out to Admin there twice with no reply. Those are PM’s from member addies that look legit enough.

I got another PM spam on Lumberjocks yesterday. I tried to save a screenshot to send to admin however my limited knowledge of how to do that ended up in failure. Again, my use of the delete button seemed the logical choice.

Learn how to use your "snipping tool." In the bottom left corner of your screen you have a search/start box. Type an "S" in that box. You will get a list of potential commands beginning with the letter "S". Click on the one that says Snipping.


Along with this "google" "how to use snipping tool." This will open a whole world of useful things that you can do with the SNIP.

BTW - Screen Shots can be saved to the Windows clip board by holding the control, shift keys down and then hitting PrtScr. Then go into a program like Word and use a control V to transfer the screen image.
