Has anyone begun to notice the occurrence or increase in volume of spam since the VO-BB was hacked? It's one of about three places on the web where my email address exists and this morning I was greeted with amazing offers of increased size and endurance (first spam I've seen since I created this account about 6 months ago.)

Just wondering..

Glad to see us back up and going.

Thank you and great job to all involved!

Yeah, Bailey says his spam receipts are through the roof.

I haven't noticed it, myself, but so what.
I'm dreadfully sorry that our security was breached.

working on security updates tonight.

Noticed quite an increase in spam, myself. It's slacking off. But I gotta say I'm diggin' the extra endurance and increased size. Got 'em lining up from four neighborhoods over.

Me too. I just thought it was from someone who had been talking to my wife.

Hi Deidre,

I was bummed to hear the board had been hacked but glad to see you've got it fixed now. Smile

What a frustrating world this www can be at time (albiet wonderful as well).

Re the post about the increased spam - I haven't noticed it but I use a spam filtering company which I have used for a few years now and absolutely LOVE it. What amazes me is the emails I get from 'people' who actually send me an email from myself! I don't think I'll ever understand how they do all this stuff (and I don't even plan on trying to - too much information Confused )

Anyway - have fun and good to see all is well again.
Cheers,
Deb

Nope me either. I'm a vegetarian as well (well OK - I do eat fish :oops: ) so maybe there is a meat-spam connection here somewhere.

We may look unwell and do strange things with kidney beans and lentils, but our Inboxes have a healthy glow that carnivores can only dream of having.

No mystery meat here either...I'm using my hotmail addy, and granted they have a spam filter, but the junk box isn't swelling, so I guess I was spared.

I prefer Treet anyway.
