Honestly? Is this what the future is going to look like?

Topic tags/keywords: question

Ok, I have to admit something. I DON’T always read the fine print. When Martin sold this site, I didn’t read all that goes with it (the new owner’s business plan, strategy, etc.). Perhaps I missed something. It didn’t hit me until just now. You mean the new “projects” are going to be about ordering checks and costumes?

I thought this was about home refurbishing, remodeling, etc. Besides the ads that adorn the pages (which I know pays the bills and makes these sites possible), should we also expect “postings” regarding hemorrhoids and feminine products?

I realize that the bottom line is making a living, and I’m not complaining (although it might sound like I am), but I honestly want to know. Did I miss something along the way??

We have to understand, Homerefurbers get much less traffic and is probably monitored less than lumberjocks. Those spams weren’t up for more than a day, if that.
I have noticed on other forums, not just here, that spam is increasing. I hope it is just the summer season and not going to be permanent.
Thank you martin for keeping up on the spam.

It really takes a lot to keep something like this running. Patrolling every site, message, etc., is a daunting task, to say the least.

I didn’t mean for my comments to be taken in a negative light.

I haven’t been on the HR site that often lately, thus my questioning.

No problem, BillyJ, glad your question could be answered.

It seems like this site has been almost totally taken over by spam!

What is going on with this site? It looks like it is full of spam and no new members have been approved (no new threads from new members) in over 4 months! Is anybody actually monitoring this site?
