- Hello Group!!
So sorry the SPAMMER slipped one over on us!!!
As you are aware, we changed our Open Posting Policy in 1999 to
Only Members Can Post in order to eliminate unwanted and offensive
SPAM. We have been extremely fortunate as we've only had two (including
this recent one) to slip through since then.
They joined our Group first... then posted their mail.
I have unsubscribed, banned, and notified Yahoo Groups re: the offense. I,
also, deleted the message and responses from our Archives. I hope this
meets with your approval!
The HACKER's and SPAMMER's are getting more sophisticated
everyday. When we respond to their eMail... even to object... or to our
Group and include their message, we keep perpetuating their garbage!!
In the future... should this happen again ... (and it can... to ANY List
or private person) ... just hit your delete button.
If it comes through our Group (or any eMail List) ...
don't respond to the Group/List ... notify the Group Moderator (me for
GENPCNCFIR) with your dissatisfaction and it will be addressed. If it
comes to you just thru private mail... DELETE without responding. By
responding to sender only verify's your address and then you really will
be inundated with SPAM!!!! Do forward a copy of the offending post to
the ISP address of the sender. IE: SPAM-help@___________
Thanks, Group, for your patience and understanding.
Have a good weekend. Keep your genealogy queries and responses coming!!
