Spam

Hello, Since joining this forum I have suddenly started receiving many hundreds of spam per day.

I receive five to ten per hour from multiple From names and subjects.

The spamers change their From & Subject contents frequently. Therefore it appears impossible to stop them.

Has anyone please found a method to prevent these several hundred spams per day from continuing?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Best thing is to not use an important domain with a list where your email address can be read, using a throwaway email address would help.
If you are receiving the amount of spam you mention then the address you are using for this list is probably best to disregard now.

To unsubscribe you will probably need to login to the freeway talk web site https://freewaytalk.softpress.com and change your settings.

Thank you Mike.

I have logged in and reset my settings. That failed to change my email address or remove me from the list or the forum.

Any other suggestions about how to unsubscribe from these forums would be greatly appreciated.

I just want out. Please, anyone.

Thank you.

If you are having problems with your settings them maybe best to contact the list mom * Walter *, his contact should be on the About page.

When you log in just uncheck your Forum Memberships then click on
‘UPDATE MEMBERSHIPS’. I’m afraid it will have no effect on the amount of
spam you receive, though. The cause of that will be elsewhere; it won’t
have been a consequence of joining this list.

It’s not my system; I’m just another subscriber. I haven’t had the spam
problems you describe and this Mailman-based forum system does not
expose your email address to spammers. As I said before, you need to
look elsewhere for the cause of your spam. I’d start with your email
account – internetroad.com.

Thank you very much.

I have unchecked those boxes. However my email address apparently
remains. It appears to continue to be included on the mailing list.

Yes, unchecking those boxes prevents me from receiving emails. But my
account remains in the forum system.

How can I remove my account & email address from the system?

I understand, and hold only myself responsible for the increased spam.
I mistakenly used a primary email address. That was my error. But I
hope that at least if you can permanently delete my account and email
address from your system, I will have vanished the next time the
spammers come through picking up account info.

Thank you.

Hello to the truly helpful people who have offered assistance, and also made changes to my account.

To RogerHoughton, Mike B., Simon M., and others, thank you very much.

We all know how insidious, destructive, and time-wasting spam is. I truly appreciate the demonstrated expertise and advice you have provided.

Roger H., it is clear that you care about providing a top caliber mail system. That aspect is also appreciated in this day-and-age where too many people do not care about the caliber of their products and services. Thank you.

I am taking seriously the good advice you all have offered.

Sincerely,
Peter

I’m not providing anything. I’m just another user, like you.
