New Members - spam alert
- Hi everyone,
I'm one of the volunteer moderators of the group, and wanted to let everyone know
that it looks like this group is being targeted for a spam attack. Some time ago this
also happened, and we moved to a restricted membership and moderated posting to
We've had over 25 requests for membership since yesterday morning. Each request
must be approved by a moderator. Right now, I'm approving the requests for
membership but watching the first posts to make sure that spam doesn't get
approved. I banned one new member last night. Some of the new members have
already unsubbed (since they weren't able to post their junk).
If you are a new member and joined GenPhoto to discuss genealogy annd
photography, we are happy to have you here. Please be patient if your posts take
some time to be approved. It's a busy season! After a new member posts on-topic a
few times, we remove the moderation requirement.
Happy holidays to all,
