Oh yeah, THAT'S why I don't post here much

Made my first post in AGES last night here at LJ, and already I'm receiving emails from apparently Russian-based "nice single women" and similarly sordid spam.

Do the rest of you guys have this problem with LJ? How do you deal with it?

Nope, don't think I have that problem. Then again, I don't read the email in my spam folder. (I use GMail, FWIW.) Don't know if it matters that I have a Permanent Account here at LJ, though. I don't think it would.

I noticed that the two previous posts by you were language agnostic, though. They just had pseudo English in the title and an emoticon for the body of the message. Maybe those posts pass some sort of Russian filter? Were they some sort of experiment?

If you can't post here anymore, please continue to post somewhere else, and let us know where to go to follow you. (Flickr is not reliable in updating feeds for submissions, though.) I've noticed that when I visit your account, it sometimes includes pictures that Flickr did not include in its associated RSS feed.

I also have a permanent account, so that's not the issue.

All of the spam is addressed to the @livejournal address, which I have forwarded to another address. Do you check your @livejournal mail, or do you have it all sent to your spam filter? I may have to do that. I don't remember when the last time was that I received a legitimate message via LJ. Maybe never.

Oh. Nope, I haven't recently gotten email at my LiveJournal inbox. If I did, I'd get a notice at GMail saying "so-and-so sent you a message."

If I ran into a spam problem, though, I'd work at having the computer filter them for me. (I think you know this about me. I strive to be lazy. I've got cron daemons doing all sorts of work for me.)

I changed a couple of settings in my profile. That might solve the problem. Maybe. We'll see.

Nope, no beautifull, lusty Russian ladies are comming to me. I suppose they prefer Hawaii over Siberia ;)
