or is this site losing its focus and becoming borderline spammy? Just saying.

Hey Dale!

As mod, I try to keep up on the spammers, and they are have been really really sneaky in how they infiltrate.  What may look spammy could also be a newbie, so I tend to be overly cautious before deleting users.

That said, what kinds of things would you like to see here?  I'm sure the QA folks are open to all kinds of ideas!

You do a great job, Muppin, but lately there seems to be a lot of non-Quilting Art posts. Since no one else has commented, I guess it must be "just me". Thanks for responding.

No, no, it's not you.  It's been very quiet here.  I'm trying to think of ways to get it back up and running again...

there have been some strange posts the last few months.

having nothing to do with quilting or even art. i posted one which got off the subject a bit - but was still art quilt related.

but maybe people are busy creating, rather than being online - which would be a good thing !!       ckquilter

Yeah, we know about them.  They seem like quilters then turn out to be spammers.  It's getting harder and harder to figure them out!

I wanted to let you both know that we've just recently run a clean-up effort in an attempt to remove those spam accounts. I just wanted to let you all know that we're listening, and appreciate all your helpful feedback.

Happy quilting,

They are back! Posting the same messages. Either I am crazy, or no one else is paying attention.

I read somewhere that they post what looks like relevant content and if they don't get moderated they move on to all kinds of spammy links.  

Thanks,

Cheryl

The spammers must have had a busy weekend, I've been deleting posts and spammers as soon as I can find them. Keep letting us know when you see those spammy posts and I will do my very best to get rid of them asap. Thank you all so much.
