When I open this section of the boards I just go wow and yuck when I see all the spam.
There are so many fun and talented people here that have shared their passion over the years. I've been inspired more than you can imagine. But I see this person running amok and taking the fun out of things.
This spammer has no regard for rules posted.
This spammer contributes no insight.
This spammer has never commented or responded to a post.
This spammer is simply a waste of space.
I posted this to begin moving them off the front page...consider adding your own new post. Wouldn't it be great to open this and see regular names with regular post.
And yes I have sent comments on to HGTV also.
Crazy isn't it?
I personally am just about done here. Afraid time may be limited for the whole board too.
Just so much C r a p to wade through, advertising and sales links to web sites part of questions/comments. We "veterans" usually know the difference with first time posters with "a mission", but new folks with legitimate questions, comments and such can get s u c k ed in.
More clicks on the links...more money for the spammers, they just keep increasing. The actual businesses they promote may not even know how those web views are coming in.
Been nice knowing you all, anyway.
I got a note back from HGTV ... they want things flagged and thanked us for the info... I hope they are really interested cause it is just bad business on their part.
I think it would be a huge loss if people can't wait for them to clean this up...
It would be nice if the powers that be here at HGTV would actually act on us reporting the spam posts. I'm about there with Conrad wading through the BS is getting old. It really won't surprise me if HGTV just shuts the thing down, they have no interest in maintaining it.
If one day we all wake up and this is gone, it has been nice sharing this corner of the interwebs with most of you.
Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.
My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
I just don't understand some of the business philosophy that is out there... if people drift from the boards aren't they going to drift from the shows also... you have to have an audience to sell commercial products to... isn't that us?
I learned so much from people here.... I was inspired here... I think HGTV should have taken that as a compliment for their involvement.
