Well, the bigger a website becomes (and the longer it's been around), the more spam it is likely to attract. Just kinda the way it goes. I have yet to see any here, so apparently the Mods are doing a great job at keeping it at bay! Thanks Mod staff, as always!

Folks, switch to GMail. The only company reading your e-mails will be Google (and sometimes hackers), total privacy against spam guaranteed.

Dunno. I haven't run into any spam, yet. But believe me, if I do, I'll be right back to report it! Hate spam, even with mayo, lettuce, & tomatoes!

Thanx Mitchel! Almost forgot what it looks like!

People use scripts to post that spam to thousands of forums in one click. We thwart 99.9% of it using technology (filters, algorithms, etc.) but some gets through. And when it does, we clean it up promptly. If you see a spammy thread just click the report post icon to alert the staff and it'll be dealt with promptly.

ya you guys are doing a great job... but the link still shows up in the recipe section when you are on the front page. But when you clik on the link it is an invalid link.
