Bad posts?
This probably isn't the place to post this, but I didn't know where else to go. Yesterday I asked a couple of questions and got great responses from some of you--I had asked for instant notification on email when there were responses. And I got those yesterday. Today I got an email saying that I had a response on the forum but when I clicked on it, it was talking about "young asian escorts", "call for young asian girls", etc. My original post was there with these comments in blue interspersed throughout my original message. Does anyone know what this is about?

It's spam. I think we got all those, but if you find one just click on the 'send report' link that is to the left of the post. No need to post here as it goes to all the mods and admin when you do that.

I suppose I'd still miss it even if it was a bigger icon.

That would have been so much easier then PM's I've sent to mods ...
taking care to include a link ...
and capture the title of the thread...
and after going back and noting the section the thread is in...

Ever feel like you've been doing things the hard way?

I consider it pretty rare, have only seen one spam myself and that was a PM here on KH.
