  • Are you being harrassed/recruited?

    A note to all forumites:

    For the past few weeks several members have contacted me regarding people PMing them and trying to recruit them to other sites. Basically, because we delete these people's posts made for the sole purpose of advertising (outside of the advertising thread) they try to target members directly through PMs. Often these recruiters haven't even made any posts on our forum.

    If you are being bothered by a recruiter (or anyone who is sending you PMs that are inappropriate) please forward them to me via PM and I and the staff will look into the issue.

    We have tried to reduce the number of people who are simply signing up for the boards just to post their links by implementing rules about posting links before having a certain number of posts, but we need your help to keep our boards spam-free!

    Thanks!

    I don't understand. They're inviting people to other forums?
    What's so nefarious about that?

      because their sole purpose on these boards is to recruit our members to other boards. They do not post or contribute. Many of our members find this behaviour harrassing.

        Yup, it's just another form of spam.

              Yeah, but only as high as the street numbers go on their assigned neighbourhood. Math is a need-to-know thing .

                  Maybe in Toronto. I've had Jehovah's Witnesses at my door at least once before. Unlike most people, I actually enjoy discussing religion with them, as long as they're friendly. It's interesting to hear others' points of view, even if they're pretty much the opposite of mine.

                    I have a friend who completely creeped them out when they came to her door. She said she agreed with them and she acted like she was into witchcraft and stuff. It's weird that they don't creep themselves out, yet witchcraft does...

                      I don't get door to door'd at all, but every now and then, I get a flyer/brochure on my door. I don't even know if that's legal. It's technically trespassing, and I'd love to call them on it. I don't go around distributing flyers on how great it is to be agnostic... ugh...

                        it's not trespassing if they stay on the walks. it is if you tell them to go the fuck away, and they stay.

                        Now stop hijacking my thread! or I'll report you to.... me.

                          Speaking of "hijacking"....

                          Did you ever hear of this guy who tried to hijack an airliner, with a can of bugspray?

                            That's technically not "liquid"
