If it had been a scratch & sniff pm with a free recipe, I might have been more inclined to click on the link NOT!!!

I was a little miffed when I saw what the PM was, but I am heartened to know that the admins here are on top of this stuff.

Glad to know it wasn't just me that received it. My PM is acting up though as pm's I'd responded to yesterday and then deleted are showing back up again. I don't know if my pm's I sent yesterday went through or not.

Also, I was having trouble getting to the site awhile ago.

Snoop - yes, we tried to "speak" with these people stating just these facts the first day they posted. I promise we really do think of all these things and discussed that very thing when the PM first came out. However, we didn't hear back from these people to confirm it's legitimacy, therefore, we will not put it in the open forums.

Snoop, I doubt that there would be a really good or legitimate reason to let any outside group conduct a survey here. And as kitchenelf noted, they didn't respond to inquiries regarding their intent.

I tried emailing them back and making Friends with them, they totaly ignored me also :(

so as a result I flatly refuse to fill in their silly survey and I hope it hurts them as much as they hurt me! SO THERE! :P


surely a relationship should be 2 Way!?
:))))))))))

We offered to help them also - I can only surmise they are not on the up and up and are harvesting some kind of information when you respond to them.

a BOT blocker might be a good idea to have here on sign up, one of those thingies with the random letters and numbers in a box, different colors and twisted typeface/font that CHR Recog bots cant read.

a Human can type it back in, a bot cannot :)



just a thought :)
