Half Annoying, Half Pathetic

I tried looking at some Yahoo groups to see if there were any likely potential members for my own group. What I found was a cartload of stay-at-home-mom sites, each with thousands of messages that were obviously spam.

Apparently these group spammers think that stay-at-home-moms either want to start some scammy pyramid scheme in their living rooms, or are all looking to sell their bodies online.

"Wanted! P* rn-Style s 3x!"

Yeah, get in line, pal.

This seems to be the case with a lot of Yahoo groups. I found a book club for Liz and I through this service, but for the most part, if the group doesn't maintain a regular moderator, it's a free-for-all for Spammers.

Well, then I guess I run a tighter ship than I thought with my Fr@@cycle group. (wht-tsshh!)

I think it's more of a problem with groups that have open membership instead of individual membership approval.
