Re: [croydoncrows] Re: spams on the croydon list
- Hi Paul,given the nature of pagan e-groups (ie people's privacy etc) , I'd say moderating/ screening the initial joining is essential. Otherwise, anyone will join in, get allour ID's/ e-mails and ..by the time we delete them, security is already breached..There's a way to set these .. I need to refresh my mind.. I'll double check abd mail you off list with step by step process..After that, every new member (poetntial) will send a request that comes to list-owner/ moderators (you..) You could also set it so they have to write a few sentences about themselves and why they want to join the list .. Then you check it and authorise it.. (very simple.. done with one e-mail.. I'll tell you about it..)BB-Mani

Well, spammers are a problem. Usually I delete them just as soon as a
spam message comes up. (I have just deleted the last spammer).
Membership is automatic just because it seemed the best thing to do
when I set up the group, and because I don't know how to moderate.
Maybe I should. What does everone else think?
