Welcome to our new members!
Our messages had an awful lot of spam, and the members list was full of spammers. But now that I've set up the list so I have to approve new members and all posts, we shouldn't have any spam issues anymore.
Though I'm no longer a teen myself, I remember how much having groups like this to talk to other teens helped me when I was that age. I want to keep the group open and I don't mind taking the time to moderate posts and keep the spam out so other teens can have the same place to chat that I had.
Post away and enjoy!
