View Full Version : Breaking Site Rules?
03-12-2004, 06:17 PM
Where can I find any rules about this site, and if someone has broken them, then what can I do about it? I've had someone sending me spam e-mails here, and insulting my website.
There are so many wonderful people here who have been very helpful, that it is such a shame to see a few people try to ruin a good thing.

Thanks, cyanide. I didn't know to whom I should report this creep. He first sent me an e-mail soliciting business for his web hosting/web design business, and stated that my website was dated (1996-1997). Next, he sent me more spam e-mails, one right after another, minutes apart. His latest e-mail today claimed that his design was 100% original, and that he couldn't say the same for mine. I'm not going to fall into a crumpled heap over his caustic comments, but there are too many people here who really do a service to others, to let this one rotten apple spoil it for those of us who are either trying to learn or help others.

Hello, Najoba --
Sorry to hear that you've been singled out; however, I would surmise that you're not inclined to take the spammer up on his "expertise." It's simply amazing at times on what a rash beginner considers a good sales technique.

I do believe that there is something new about your appearance today, ldyguique! Congrats, and most deserved.

Well, thanks, hon. I received the MVP a few weeks ago, but I've not been posting much cus I've been so bogged down in trying to a) keep up with my offshore research endeavors and postings on anti-sites; b) trying to figure out HOW to work with a CSS/HTML set of templates; c) figuring out how to edit "stuff" in Photoshop Elements; d) smacking various various forums/blog programs around; and/or e) just learning.
One of the coolest tools that I've been testing out is called "WebStasher" by Flexity. I was searching for bibliographic software and came across it and was immediately "WOWed" by it. I'm awaiting the latest release, 1.5; but, I still flipped my plastic at it - and I rarely consider programs that are +$39 (it's $60).
