Diary – Monday 19th January 2015

Another day when I barely left my keyboard.

I got hit with some spam, even on Persona Papers but that was quickly intercepted and annihilated straight away once reported by me. Interestingly it came from an account that was still listed as pending.

The real ale beer society magazines for me to deliver to pubs in the area I live arrived at the house. I’ll be taking them out tomorrow for distribution. Members of the group take some each to circulate to save postage for our real ale society.

As the issues are getting bigger with each print run, it is getting to be a more demanding task but it’s a great excuse to visit a couple of North Manchester pubs, including the Railway Inn in Moston, pictured above, which is likely to be my first port of call.

This reference to Spam is interesting because I have had similar on my profile from someone claiming to be a woman and providing an email address to contact.

usually the spam is from adverts. If you can, take a screenshot and contact the admins. They use the screenshot to determine which ad company is responsible and get it dealt with.

probably the same lady I expect - if so she has been sorted out now

How do you mean you got hit with spam - comments or other stuff?

a lady who still had her account pending to join the site here wrote on my profile giving me her dating requirements and her e-mail address in case I wanted to hear more - I didn't - I just forwarded her message to admin

I assume that it would be. I just looked back at my profile page and the message has already disappeared, which is an excellent response from the site.

You might have missed an opportunity there!! Seriously though - what a cheek!!

Same for me. She was there with her oozy offer then gone. I'd been just about ready to post a question on how to remove it...

Not bad excuse to visit a pub. Not that one actually needs an excuse...

Oh, I love that sign for the pub! I just met a lovely lady from Manchester today. She was rather impressed that I was able to identify where she came from (I'm American, living Stateside), but I have a friend from that area, so it helped :)

I know I could now be married had I handled it differently

Haven't seen any spam here on Persona Paper. Actually thought it didn't exist here. It's good that they got this spam issue sorted out.

I didn't know how spam applied here until I read the comments...
