frustrated...other forums
« on: February 19, 2011, 12:09:04 PM »
 :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
I joined two forums this week to post questions.
The first notified me that my post was on hold pending approval of admin. (sound familiar?) It has been 5+ days and still my post does not appear.  :watchyawn:
The second notified me that my post is on hold pending approval of admin and that forum won't even allow me to access my own profile to make adjustments.
 :banghead: :banghead:

I know that both of them are protecting against spammers.
And against the pseudo SEO people that wander the web looking for forums to post backlinks to sites to build rankings for other sites.
This is the most popular reason for registering/posting on most forums these days.
And it is SO aggravating that legit posts are held hostage.
So I wait...wait to see if my posts EVER get approved!  :watchyawn:  :banghead:  :watchyawn: :banghead:  :watchyawn:
Then wait to see if there is an answer...!   :watchyawn: :watchyawn: :watchyawn:


Did I tell you folks I was approached by 3 different people to post on forums to build rankings as a part-time position a couple years ago?
Though time consuming, it is very easy, but I could not bring myself to do it since I fight against it everyday!

The whole issue of spam etc on the internet is totally out of control, forcing us to continually increase security. Where will it end?

fighting against spammers, hackers and virus/trojan makers, etc. is, and will always be, a never end battle.
