Can't all the "marketing" be stopped?

I love the site, but lately it seems we've been inundated with adverts for (among other things) cheap shoes, knock-off perfume, and jewelry of dubious quality. Now we've got folks trying to get us to download movies (most likely) illegally. Whoever they are, wherever they are, they're making our beloved site look like "wannabEbay". It's annoying and embarrassing.

Can't they be stopped?

Thanks.

Julia

Hey guys! Don't know if it'll do any good, but I sent an email to the webmaster yesterday.

These wretched promotion things are WAY over the top - too many of them in a very short time. They probably won't even go away if they are totally ignored.

Not having a lot of faith in the moderators or the webmaster.

Site is spammed.

I have seen too many good sites go down from this.

Hello Hagg

All's well. Took mum out for Mother's day. Otherwise been busy with academic chores in my new job: setting exam questions, project supervision, meetings, workshops, and so on!

Keep well,
Vinod

These bow-legged sons of mothers who've been hijacking the site lately have just gone TOO FAR. Some whelp by the name of efronja posted an 'upload this movie' message on a thread started by mom of two boys' brother.

Isn't there some way we can get rid of these [expletives deleted]?

I couldn't agree more Julia. That is the lowest of the low.

I also agree, couldn't believe it when I came back on site after a few months away. We all worked so hard to get this Forum to what it was. Where are all all these people coming from ? They are the lowest of the low. I would say to them, go peddle your wares somewhere else, not on a site for Oral Cancer sufferers. Fran
