MWF membership surpasses 100
« on: November 27, 2006, 02:51:50 PM »

I noticed that members 100 and 101, NiceAsGirl and Ozirojand, signed up yesterday. (I know it says we have 102 members but remember that Kathleen signed up twice.† :)† )

To any and all new members over the past two months, welcome! Tell us a bit about yourself and what you are working on. Feel free to ask a question or post a comment. Remember that there are no dumb questions (although some of our answers might be suspect† :) ).

After reading the recent spam in the Forum Announcements, I'm now only welcoming legitimate members who are interested in writing and mysteries in general.† Spammers need not apply.† >:(

Yep. Did my first smiting on the spammer in Announcements. Felt good to finally use this sword for something noble. :)

I suspect about twenty of the new members are nothing more than spammers (based on the similarity in email addresses to the spammer or having a hidden email).† But I do hope that the latest new member, Josie, is our one and only Jo Rockhill. :)

I've really been missing Jo, too.  She was the first MWF member I ever met f2f.

I'm playing detective here. With an email address of rockhill@dpc.net and a member name of Josie, I'm putting two and two together and hoping I'm getting four.

Oh, good grief!  In that case Jo had better speak up and talk to us.

...or having a hidden email

Just had to say that I hid my e-mail address a few days after joining because the spam level in my mailbox jumped to an incredible amount.  >:(  Color me unhappy with that turn of events.  Any member may have have my e-mail address by message request.

That makes sense Peg!

I have now hidden my email addresss, and If any kosher member wants to contact me or wants my email address they can send me a PM.

Cheers
