    When there’s more spammers replying to threads than anglers!

    Have I missed one?
    Certain American spam crap seems to be getting through onto really old posts for some reason, but I can’t see the amount that you are getting at, or like I say, have I missed some?

    Just had a look around and found 4 bits of trash, just pm me and I will remove them Glebe. I am not on here full time, but will remove them if I know about them.
    Pad.

    There’s more on here than you realise then Paddy!
    You’ve missed at least another 10 “Yank” members posting subtle crap.
    I’ll PM you their user names.

    Pm back to you – they are not people, they are spam bots.
    Just point me in there direction if I miss them and I will remove them. They are super annoying though.

    A sorry state of affairs…

    When the only possible viable alternative to TF is MFS, where…

    It cost £10 to be a full member.

    ‘It’s worth it cos I’ve made so many friends and I’ve learnt so much’

    …learnt so much about approximately three carp fisheries.

    …sorry, but I don’t need to pay to be a member of a website to have mates.

    ‘But there’s loads of prizes every month’

    … If you’re prepared to join an undignified list of people posting ” me please”

    Totally pathetic…

    The web is a massive place and its big enough for us, them and every one else.
    Weather you go there and pay, come here for free, or go anywhere else, so be it!
    Personally, I miss some of those guys, but it’s no longer like the Wild West, and that’s a good thing in my opinion.

    Hey, read back you



    , my original post was intended to highlight the Yank spammers that were ruining threads and since then I’ve been PM’ing Paddy to help him identifying them.
    WTF has MFS got to do with it?
    No wonder this forum is on it’s arse

    Your original post was intended to belittle TF.

    If it wasn’t, you could have brought this to attention of the mods by PM, and kept it to PM.

    And as for yor comments about me personally, I’m quite prepared to discuss this face to face any time you like.

    Its down to posters, if you post junk you get worse junk back. However some quality is usually met with same. That’s my experience, weekend evenings are best avoided after the drink has sunk in..

  • #175287

    I fully understand that sites have to be paid for to maintain their running costs,and would have no problem paying a sensible/practical membership to a regular updated site,and not just a blank page,or same post for weeks on end without regular additions and topics.
    but would also only pay to the sites actually designer,and not any moderation team,or member,who might have the option to just say sorry your face does not fit,but thanks for the money anyway.

  • #175290

    The only real reason that sites become splintered is mainly due to either cliques forming,resulting in more private pm.s than actual information sharing posts with other site members,and lack of threads because of this.and also many so called internet experts who only want to post to a selected minority of followers when they do well for the hollow respect they try and gain,but will not post when they do not win because they are too blinkered in their own mindset,and won’t therefore share mistakes with others to learn from.
    just my own opinion of course.

    Maybe but idiotic posts like the one below aren’t really bonding material….

    “Go back to all your one venue chums, and stop bothering proper anglers…”

    I thought we were all one and the same being anglers, it seems that some of us are think they are more “proper” than others……

    Facebook is free and don’t get me started about MFS :rolleyes: 😮 Think they have there problems aswell but everyone to there own I suppose ! . Still plenty of info here but I think times have changed now where anglers just look in on a regular basis without posting . Simple Match fishing also very good site for info with zero hassle 😎

    ps Don’t think GLEBE1 set out to upset anyone btw , just my opinion 🙂
