    Anyone who is looking to market products or services inside the community, please read this.

    DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT spam or advertise your product/website in the Project Meditation community. If you do your account will be deleted and you will be banished from registering on this site again.

    To protect the whole community from useless and annoying spam which has been witnessed in other online communities, I have been put in charge of dealing with this issue and I operate a zero tolerance rule.

    To all the genuine people who are just here to make use of the meditation service:- So pleased to meet you and I'm sorry for sounding harsh :)

    If you are just here to spam our community. Watch out :mad:

    Thanks!

    Spam

    Sounds like a fair warning Pollyanna!..I'm sure we will all keep a vigilant eye out for spammers, at least when our eyes are open and were not meditating..lol.
    All the best and Love it up!

    Sorry, I actually really dislike that post - I'm sure everyone will look out to protect this community. It's hard to sound so mean but I want other people to have the chance to experience the wonderful benefits I have through project meditation. Have you read the articles Foojoy that I keep raving on about. I'd love to hear your comments on them. In fact they are soooo amazing I'm going to post a message to Michael right now and suggest he does a quiz on the articles to encourage people to read them and then they won't miss out. Joy and happiness to you :):cool:

    spammers

    I would not know what to do with one- can anyone help and give me warnings or how to get rid of them- Some say we have a Spam folder so far I have not found it.

    Hi Lilybaby,

    Are you referring to spam email messages?

    If so, this will depend on what program or website you view your email messages on, and whether your email provider offers any spam filtering for you. It can also differ depending on whether you have certain software installed e.g. McAfee Security Suite, which can monitor your emails for you and remove seemingly spammy messages, or quarantine them into a Quarantine folder.

    Things like Hotmail, have a setting so that you only get mail from people in your address book delivered to your inbox and anything else goes to your Junk folder.
    Other web based emails either do nothing to prevent spam or have something in place to mark suspicious emails with e.g. "* SPAM *" at the start of subject line.

    There are many different methods and means of dealing with spam, and it will depend on your own individual setup on your computer and who you have your email setup with.

    As for these forums, they tend to remain spam free, no doubt due to the vigilance of PollyAnna and the other moderators. I'm a moderator on another forum and I know that spam messages are one of the big things we constantly have to deal with to keep the forums tidy. Fortunately, we have means and ways of determining if some of the new members signing up are likely to be spammers and we can sometimes stop them before they've even finished registering on the site. ;)

    Hugs

    Giles
