As many of you know, we've been experiencing some problems with SPAM (i.e. digital junk-mail) in the community.  Some of you have been receiving unsolicited messages on your profile page and subsequently your email inbox.  I'd like to address a few issues regarding this problem:

 

  • First of all, we work very hard to prevent SPAM in this community and will continue to do so.  However, we are unable to stop 100% of the events.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  Receiving these type of messages can be frustrating, time consuming, and a bit disheartening.
  • Do not be alarmed if you receive SPAM.  You were simply one of the unlucky few who was randomly selected by the SPAMMER to send a message to.  
  • The SPAMMERS do not have access to your personal information such as email address, etc.  The reason you may be receiving emails is simply because the community is automatically notifying you of a message you received from within the community.  
  • A bit of background information regarding our efforts to thwart SPAM: when anyone signs up to become a member of the Kreg Jig Owners' Community they have to answer a simple question.  By answering this question correctly, the community software knows you're a real person.  This prevents automatic-type SPAM computers from making profiles automatically and using them to SPAM community members.  Unfortunately, if the SPAMMERS are really persistent and are committed to getting in they can still do so by hiring real people to fill out the form to create a real-person profile.  Up until recently SPAM had been virtually eliminated in the Kreg Jig Owners' Community.  We will continue to work to keep the community as free from SPAM as possible, but we need your help.
  • As our community continues to grow (now over 26,000 members and thriving) we will continue to be a bigger target to SPAMMERS.  This means that members will need to take a more active role in pointing out problems when they surface.
  • If you see any questionable posts/messages (someone inviting you to send them money or to buy something or to visit their website for a 'good time,' etc.) please report it to KregRep by sending a personal message.  To send a personal message, simply visit KregRep's Page, and then click 'send a message'.  Be sure to include the name of the spammer, or perferably, a direct link to the spammer's personal page as there are sometimes multiple users with the same name.
  • After being notified by community members of a suspected SPAMMER, KregRep will delete the user's account so further mailings are halted.

Thank you for your patience with this issue.  We're confident measures we're taking will reduce the likelihood of frustrating SPAM in the future.

That "" Lady"" is really tenacious...keep in sending emails, yes we talking about Nancy, she love handymans hahaha

 

 From all these posts it has become obvious to me that Nancy is a lying, cheating, slut and not to be trusted! I'm beginning to think all she wants is my money! I have written her to advise that the wedding is OFF !! I have also begun to suspect that she may not even own a Kreg pocket hole jig or even be interested in DIY ... I hope you fellows have better luck with Nancy than I did... Sure hope this ugly rash goes away soon... ;-)

Oh! I AM SO UPSET!

Here I thought Rita only wanted me and now I see she's playing the field.

;-)

I also received an email from "Nancy". Thanks for the email about spamming and your concerns and proactively dealing with these problems. I'm glad to know I joined such a member friendly community.
Hi to All     I got one from Rita. Why don't someone with 'computer knowledge' send those address's some bad virus's? I bet they wouldn't like that Invasion of privacy!! Hopefully the 'over seeers' of our Community will take some kind of action against these 'people' (not the word I wanted to use!!!!). It makes me sick that our Society has gotten to this point.  Just my 25cents,     TCorey  
I got email from  rita21love@yahoo.co.uk thanks for letting me know about this spam.

Hey Gang,

The problem is no one has the power to "turn the tables" on the spam\malware jerks!

They have the knowledge and skills to go through a very large number of servers to cover their butts!! Leaping between, back to and  across continents at lightning speed with such skill that you may be able to see where they ended, but not   where they started !

Take care.... Mark

You guys can have rita and nancy I'll take my Miss Lilian. It is funny that people will do that on a website like this.
add nancy_77.desmond@yahoo.co.uk
  to the list of spammers that need to be deleted please

I was about to drop out of this group as I got hit from a lady from the UK wanting to go to her site.  Being very knowledgeable about computers and Web problems, I just put it in the waste basket as I call it.  Thanks for the info from the Kreg rep that they are doing something about it.  This is a great company.

 

Ralph Delta, O

I did not have the problem until I received your email notifying me of the spam issue. The next email was spam from your site. I hope you can block and resolve this.  Chuck
Well, I am one of the unlucky ones! sorry to say I didn't see this notice until after I sent an email to the rep asking what in the world was going on.  Thanks for the info.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
