Thumbs down Spam
Seems that many of the cruise chat various threads are containing more and more items that are getting thru containing adv or just plain spam. Has the site recently undergone an upgrade or change that is allowing this to become more and more of a nuisance ?

No, and we are not alone. Cruisemates is fighting spammers too. Our software settings catch an average of 1000 new spam accounts every day, which I can then delete before they post. But, it is impossible to get them all. The ones getting through are not computer generated, they are actual people who can get through the account verification questions. Also, if you see a post with a little holiday wreath on the top right, those are getting in via the ICQ instant message service, and there is no software setting to block it. In those cases, they are hoping someone will try to IM them.

I belong to a forum about spammers and lots of people are reporting issues. It is normal to happen this time of year, but this is indeed the worse I've ever seen.
