I have signed - i hope care2 members sill click the little spam link under the pick posted to get these taken down. They keep popping up, but, someone must be helping out, because that is happeing less frequently. They are so annoying - yesterday AM there were 26 spams to watch TV programs, etc. On the first page! These people do not have profiles - they are hackers hijacking out website! Let's declare war on them and keep clicking them to report them and then their ads do not show.

Care2 needs to do its part to remove these! I just clicked on 2 - one was for a designer selling clothes- they need to buy an ad, not use Care2! You can tell they are spam because when you refresh, they come back for a while. If you are persistent, though, you eventually get them off. Clicking on the spam link reports them to Care2 who should then take them down!

Faithful Care2 members couldn't get away with this behavior.

Who do you want, us or them? Faithful Care2 members don't spam.

Thank you for taking away the nuisance.

Hey guys, at least it.s working!
I blasted one Wednesday, and it ws gone by Thursday...looks like Payntersville doesn't like the bad press..
Must make for some awkward pauses in the conversation at those fancy wine and cheese parties.
And having it blown up on twitter gave me a great feeling.
A win~win for us...sending a big virtual hug to Kit every time i see one get pulled :-)

That takes some set of balls for the spammers to hit an article specifically against them.

Consider the scumbags flagged!

Seth E: Isn't that the truth?! It isn't enough that they torture animals, kick their elders out of ancestral homes to bulldoze 'em for new high-rises, poison animals and even babies with their melanine-laced crap, dump loads of tacky, toxic garbage all over the planet oblivious to the carbon footprint (etc ad nauseum).... but they trespass serious discussions of serious topics to hawk the stuff. Even this discussion! BALLS, INDEED!

I'd like to get my hands on those balls.... I'd give 'em a real good twist. I'd dig my nails in, too.

I signed this petition with great gusto.

I ask the site (Care2) administration to enable us to "hide" such spam "comments" from ourselves...not totally deleting (of course I prefer it) but, like spam post be hidden if we hit "demote - spam" button on C2NN newly submitted page.

Yes, I submitted this after Kit's original. Normally it would not post. I had apologized to her and as you see, she happily welcomed the continuation. As for the spammers on the page. I find it completely curious that they have all been flagged multiple times and are still here...don't you???

Good way to flag spam;
Click on Flag as inappropriate
Write in Advertising spam
Click control & A at the same time
Click control & C at the same time
Click report
Then everytime you see another spam
Click Flag as inapproriate
Click Control & v at the same time
Click report

Then you have to type less.

Previously signed but I have just flagged FOUR spams on THIS topic!

We have always had some, but Care2 used to remove them quite quickly, now they don't seem to bother.

I don't mind flagging spam, but Care2 should act on it, I wonder sometimes what they actually do as they never answer queries either.

Ironically, when someone had asked for their topic to be removed because it had a bad link, I told the Op not to hold their breath as Care2 don't bother to do anything.... my post was removed, but the topic wasn't, they obviously don't like the truth.

Let's see if they remove this one and leave the spam! Lol.
