Dear All

I am sorry if forum members are receiving selling emails/messages as a result of Spammers joining the forum and pestering you. There has been a spate of 'bogus' members this week.

As soon as I see new members who are clearly joining the forum to sell sex aids, software,.... and not as tribal textile enthusiasts I am banning and deleting them. However, there is a time-lag before I can do this and I am afraid you may be pestered despite my best efforts.

Warning to those who use this forum to pester members: I will not tolerate it being manipulated in this way!

Hi all,

Susan Stem just informed me that an email and attachment, apparently sent by me, may contain a virus.

To protect yourselves, please do not open any email and attachment, without checking with me first.

In fact, as Pamela knows, I never send attachments. Please note that Pamela, in her kindness, always posts for me when necessary since both my printer and scanner are currently kaput.

Most people are aware that I forward rather then use an attachment. Be square and be aware, is what they say around here!

Sandie

This forum for enthusiasts of tribal textiles continues to be targetted by SPAMMERS intent only on using membership to gain access to email addresses of members to try sell a variety of products and services.

I am currently being being completely ruthless in my banning and deletion of any memberships which appear to me to be for this reason only.

I am very sorry if a potentially genuine member with enthusiasm for tribal textiles has been deleted as well. If this is the case please contact me via the 'comments' link at the bottom of any page of the www.tribaltextiles.info website and I will make sure that a membership for you is 'protected'.

This forum is NOT a vehicle for selling. We do have a special area of the community which relates to questions and answers on buying tribal textiles "Tribal textile shopping... Where members can request and provide information on where to buy tribal textiles" http://www.tribaltextiles.info/communit ... um.php?f=9 but this is strictly limited as described.

I am sorry if forum members are being pestered by email spamming as a result of their membership of this forum. I am doing my best to police this - but even a tribal textile obsessive such as myself has to sleep sometimes!
