SPAM. By Lindsay and Valley2.
 
This thread, SPAM, is made by Lindsay and Valley2.

SPAM stands for

Sending
Pointless
Annoying
Messages

Spam is not only annoying, but its also bad.
On webkinzinsider, through emails, on AIM, spam can show up anywhere.

Spam are things like

"Send this messages to 10 people other whise you will die in 2 hours"
"Send this to as many people as you can, otherwise you will never have good luck again!"

^^These usually show up through emails or AIM.

On WebkinzInsider, SPAM looks more like this:

"?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ??" Instead of saying "I dont understand what you're saying"

or

"How do I get gifted?" on a thread about a blooper or something.

-------------

When you send SPAM it makes everything slower. If you're sending it through a email, it makes the internet slower.
On an email, most SPAM are things that are fowarded. It'll look something like this:

Subject: FW: Send this to 10 people!

Most email that look like this are both SPAM and contain viruses for your computer.

--------------

On WebkinzInsider, SPAM makes the forum much slower. Besides that, its annoying.

So, please, please dont SPAM. Its annoying, and bad for the internet.
Not to mention its against the rules on WI. If you are caught spamming on WI, your post will be deleted.

--------------

What to do if you see SPAM!

Report the person you see using spam, and then tell them spamming is against the rules.

If it is a new user, say something like "You're post is considered SPAM. Spam is against the rules. I have reported you, only so the post will be deleted. Please dont SPAM again. [optional: give them a link to this thread so they understand what spamming is]

If it is a user that isnt so new, and you know they know better say something like "Please dont spam, its against the rules. You have been reported. [optional: link to this thread]"

If it is a user you have caught spamming more then once, say something like "Please dont spam. This is the (number)th time I have asked you not to spam. You have been reported. [optional: link to this thread]"

Thanks,
Lindsay & Valley2.
