jennifer38 : (25 November 2014 - 10:49 AM) I've been trying, all day, to start a blog.  I created it, but I can't find where to type the main text of my entries.  For now, I seem to have the easiest time with the shoutbox.  I know I'm heard, here, for sure, and I can easily find other stuff I've already typed, here.

EmmaSweet : (25 November 2014 - 07:21 AM) Hi Jennifer, I suggest you start a blog on this topic and any others that you have now or later. I'm sure there are people here, like me, who would be happy to help however we can.
pushkal : (25 November 2014 - 05:34 AM) Hello to all
jennifer38 : (25 November 2014 - 04:36 AM) Good morning all.  Its after 7 AM Eastern.  Cold weather's coming back to PA.  Yuck.  Anyway, in response to someone I read, I would like to start a thread on my unique issues.  I wonder if this is what intersexed is.  When setting up my account, I wasn't sure which gender option to choose.  All I know is, I want to honestly state my true physical makeup as a man, but just as honestly confess my internal female feelings.  I've always wanted to meet other people in my exact situation.  I trust I am not alone in this, and this forum is a great way to vent these feelings I cannot just tell anyone.  At least I shouldn't be criticized or judged for this.  I'd certainly get it if I told family and church members.  I've hinted at it to my family, but I definitely did not go into all the vivid detail like I'm doing here.

Our forum is relatively popular within our market, and it's sure to attract spammers. We have a zero tolerance for such activities so be very careful. If you have a transgender related website or personal blog you're welcome to put your URL in your profile where it asks for your web address. You're also welcome to add a link in your signature provided it isn't too spammy and it is transgender related.

We monitor this site very closely and spot spammers almost instantly. We will delete any spam messages, posts, profile links or signature links and delete membership from the site. We permanently ban any associated IP addresses (sometimes including subnets) and this will result in being banned from many other forums that use spam monitoring services, as we do. There are absolutely no warnings or advance notice and there is no appeal process so please abide by our message forum rules. If in doubt please just ask in advance.
If you want what you've never had, you've got to do what you've never done.

I know we need to monitor our Emails only from those we know but if it's a so called member possing then should we give you said Link that we get that way you can notify others like this as to look out for or should we make a posting that others here can goto and find the links to look out for .

"...whats to stop them from grabbing our Email address and adding it to their lists then bugging us that way ." -stephani

spammers, or anyone else for that matter, cannot see your email addy in your profile. the actual address is hidden, and the only way anyone will see it is if you post it in a thread in any of the forums - which has been warned against in the past, or if you reply to email that someone has sent you using the link in your profile.

if by some chance a spammer cliks on the "click here to e-mail me" link that is in your profile, the email will arrive at it's destination unless the recipient has filters that would prevent it. however, the spammer does not know where that email was delivered, and will not know the recipient's email addy unless the recipient responds as mentioned above. if an email is bounced back to the spammer because of the recipient's email filters, it's possible a spammer could then discover the email addy at that time. that is something that someone else will have to answer. but i would think that if something like that happened, it wouldn't matter - you would never know about the spam because you would not have received it, and the spammer would probably not bother sending more spam because the email was returned to him/her.

for the most part, tho... the majority of spammers we encounter (lately) are "ad spammers." they come in, register, and put links in their own profile. the ones that do post spam in the forums don't normally take the time to stop and email people - email and PMs sent out by spammers are thankfully rare.

as always, if you or anyone receives email or PM's from someone you suspect is a spammer, or the content of such email or PM's are of an undesirable nature... let admin or any of us moderators know about it. nothing can be done if no one says anything.
