Quilt With Us

I am a new member, of about three days, and I have already received what suspiciously looks like a spam message on my profile. A message asking me to contact them directly to discuss something personal.

What exactly do you need to discuss with me personally, not on a public site? Are my quarter inch seams off? Have I pieced incorrectly and not ripped the culprit out? Are you the secret quilt police and I have violated some international quilt laws and you have decided to avoid public humiliation and warn me in private? Or do you find my color choices intriguing and your wanting to know if I like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain?

Spam on a quilting site....who knew!

Joan, I actually do like non-alcoholic piña coladas. I get the you won a free vacation to the sunniest spot on earth! Or something to that effect. I'm like, I don't tan, I broil....click.

I'm having a blast here already!

Hi Mary! Welcome to QWU! Darn, I thought I was the spam queen. Although I have never gotten any on this site I get over 100 daily on my email page. I never open any of it and erase it all immediately but they still send it over and over. Anyhow, the ladies on this site are friendly and sweet as can be. And they are so helpful! You will not be disappointed that you joined.

I got the same message. I have found if you ignore it it will go away

I have never gotten any spam either but have seen some posts that were definitely not from one of us.  CT will surely take care of this issue for you.  I am a long time members of this site and enjoy it more then any other quilting site I have ever joined.

Haven't had the honor, LOL!  SPAM is an annoyance.  What irks me are the robo calls.  Especially when I'm out pulling weeds and have to run for the house to catch the phone only to hear a recorded sales pitch.  Sooo....do you like piña coladas???

Not had anything like that in all the years I've been here.  I've seen "ads" on the main page from folks looking for a captive audience to promote their own issues but they were quickly removed.  I agree....let CT Administration know.

Thanks everyone, and no it doesn't tarnish my view of the site. I just think it's remarkable that spammers have moved on to quilting sites. Not that quilting isn't huge, but it's not exactly "mainstream". I expect spamming in my email. Didn't think my first comment would be spam, lol.

Just in case, I measured my 1/4 inch seam again...think I'm ok!

I love your attitude! Welcome to our generally pleasant site.

LOL Mary! I received the same message.

Welcome! I hope this doesn't tarnish your view of Quilt With Us, it is actually the first spam message I have received. A lot of fun people here, and I get lots of information and inspiration from these lovely folks.
