Anonymous SpammersIn the past, when a spammer started using my stories and poems to advertise their wares, I simple clicked on their avatar and went to their profile and blocked them. Now, it seems they have found a way to do this anonymously. No avatar, no user name. NO WAY TO BLOCK THEM. They just keep putting their ads as comments on my stories.
I resent this.
The comments section is meant for people to comment on what they have read; not to use my space for advertising.
Tell me, EP, do they at least PAY you for this advertising? Or are they getting their ads out there for free? If they are paying you for the right to invade my space, fine. Could I please get a piece of the profits? That would make the ads less of an invasion. What say, I get a one month premium membership (gold star and all) for each time someone uses one of my stories to post their ads.
By now, I'd have earned a gold star by my name for at least 5 years.
Do paid members (the ones with gold stars by their names already) have a special way to stop these spammers? If I became a paid member, would I be able to stop them?
Just Kidding; but seriously; how is it possible for someone to post here, without a profile? We don't even have the option of blocking these space invaders.
Please, help. I have flagged them each and every time it happens, but have heard nothing about what is being done about it. Perhaps doing it this way, might at least get me a response. I realize that you probably have thousands of people flagging these spammers, so can't really respond to us all individually, as you actually are people and not machines, but I'm hoping this will get some attention.
