My gmail has been inundated by this over the last couple of weeks. 20 or 30 a day. I don't know where it came from and suspect spamming. So now it goes directly to spam. But the spam box is still filling. I Googled it and it looks like some sort of social networking BS which I don't participate in. And I never signed up for it. Then they say if I want to unsubscribe or adjust my priorities I have to sign up and log in. Was hoping gmail would take notice and do something but nothing yet. Anyone else?

Once you have been in email contact with someone who subsequently joins a “social network” — that “social network” raids their email for any addresses it can find, and invites you to join “Joe Bloggs” on that social network.

If anyone of them is silly enough to join that “social network” in order to opt out — then that “social network first raids their email addresses, and the process is repeated.

It’s like a virus.

This is why most of us here refuse to have anything to do with “Facefudge”

Just keep them all going to spam (but check for genuine emails) and it should all start to trail off over the coming months. Unless that person joins another “social network” (like Google’s own) ………

ilikeyou is not like [or from] facebook. It is a hook up app like Tinder or Plenty of Fish, and is more likely I think they got your email from a porn site or something closer to that.

Only problem I have with facebook, is it's founder that pole smoking little creep Mark Suckenberg and his Nazi Moderators, which are quick to ban any Right Thinking person on a whim...while letting Islamic Trash and far left loons post any and every foul Anti Freedom thing they wish....

I have never had a spam problem from them....most of G~Mail's issues are direct from Google.....thus I have switched to BING for 95% of my searches....

As alot of my friends on facebook are active/former military, my facebook page is inundated with right wing posts everyday. Its not that the moderators care what you post, facebook is just there to make money. The post that have been flagged/removed are those that have been reported. While technically anyone can view your profile if it is not private, I doubt random liberals are trying to take you down personally [they're too busy foaming at the mouth over Trump]. The people reporting you are the people that see your posts without having to look for them specifically, which are... YOUR FRIENDS. You must pick your friends wisely, boss.

Nope, if you post on a political{or any other site} they will "turn you in"....a couple of weeks ago for example, some D~Bag Dog Faced Bitch was spouting off on her Pro Murder in the Womb BS....and I simply said "Even though I am pro life to the Nth Degree, taking one look at your Dyke Ass, It's to bad your mom didn't choose to terminate you at conception".....damn if I didn't get a 30 day boot....{although I have 2 pages so it really doesn't effect me}...so, NO, that dog was no "friend' of mine on facebook or anywhere else....so one of me got the boot....meanwhile Liberals can puke any fun filled lie and slam they want and not get a slap on the wrist.

Now mind you, I'm not complaining, the bash the trash and see what you can get away with, is all part of the Winter Fun of Facebook, waiting for the riding and out of door seasons :laughing9:

Ah i see. I thought you meant your posts were removed. What you got banned for was directly insulting someone, not your political beliefs. Saying that to some uber-right wing republican would get you banned too. You say they 'will' turn you in, they will only turn you in if you are the one being a douchebag, which in this case you were. You can always report them too though.

Exactly why...Calling someone a dyke ass and that she should have been aborted is pretty much a slam dunk violation of ANY social site.

Why the Hell would I turn somebody in on a fu*king social site? The ugly abortion loving bit*h started it...she just couldn't take the heat, and cut and ran, but let's face it, when confronted, Liberals always do...and I've never seen anybody get a "time out" for insulting a Right Winger...they are{just like on ADV Rider} Celebrated....

Boys, boys! Pleeze! But I gotta say Hoot, that gave me a chuckle.
As for deleting the spam box. I need the spam box cause sometimes legit stuff gets directed there. And I am not a fan of Facebook or any of them. where it came from? I gave up TV a couple of years back and get my "kicks" from youtube. That could have been the source. Guess I'm stuck with it.

That has nothing to do with political leanings though. If you said that in public you would be kicked out of whever you are, why would the internet be any different. The only difference is electrons don't make noise, so they don't disturb the general public- so the only reason to get booted is if you were reported.

Motoad, I think what they meant was just delete your spam emails as they pile up in the spam folder, and not actually delete the spam box.

I totally understand, and even though I seldom ever visit risqué sites, I get huge amounts of spam! I mean, like anywhere from 30 to over 100 spams a day! No joke! And it's spam about every topic you can to imagine.

Fortunately for me, I use an email through a local Internet service provider. I take care of all my email business online through that service provider, and I do not use an email client, such as Windows Mail on my computer. I do have to pay for it, it is not free, but it comes with one other huge benefit: it has an incredible spam filter that sends anything that might even be spam to what might be called a holding pen on a completely different Internet site. Spam almost never reaches my inbox. Seriously, I'm lucky if I get one spam email in my inbox a week! Their spam filter is incredible, when I log into the spam site to check and see what has arrived in it I almost never find anything that I actually wanted to have arrived in my inbox. the site my ISP uses is called roaring Penguin software Inc. m.

my post is starting to sound like a Monty Python sketch: spam spam spam spam… :D m.

READY FOR THIS EVERYBODY???? :D


In order to end this hijacked thread or at least get it back on track I will provide a solution to the original poster.

Step one= Open your spam folder.
Step two= Place a check mark in the box next to the offending emails.
Step three= Select the "More" button near the top.
Step four= Select filter.
Step five= Enter your filter criteria.
Step six= Click save.
Step seven= Drink a cold beer while enjoying your nearly always empty Spam folder!

CHEERS!
