Here we are, our little Survival Monkey community floating around in the giant WWW, and yet the number of spammers and scammers who try to join our group is amazing. Most of you never read their garbage because we check out the IP's, email address, and usernames as they are joining. There are tools available to do this checking but it takes time and patience. I'm proud that very few of them ever get the chance to post. The mods keep a list of banned spammers and in the past few months, we have added about 300 to the list. I guess this is just a warning to members in general - when traving the web, beware. We all know this but even some innocent sounding messages and sites can lead us to a fraudulent scheme. Always use caution and remember to report any suspicious posts to the mods. We want to keep our community as safe and sane as possible - well, safe anyway.
