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.
would someone going to someone elses band fan club,and posting that they hate the band,be considered spam?

Many thanks (and a given rep) for this very informative thread...

It's well thought out and has an explanation that everyone can easily understand, no matter what the age level...

One thing though, being of the "older" generation and not too current on alot of the acronyms, could you please explain what AIM is? LOL, I'm getting better at them BUT find that everyday there is another one that pops up that leaves me befuddled (an easy thing I admit ha!!!)...

This would not be considered SPAM, but it would be considered rude, and is not allowed.

LOL. Yes, AIM stands for Aol Instant Messanger. It is just something that people chat on. See, what happens is that you add someone else's username to your buddy list, and when the log on, you can chat with them. Its not quite like an email, where it sends, then a few days later someone gets back to you. Its like, someone sends a message and right away the person writes back. It's almost like talking on the phone, except no one can hear each other, they just read what the other person says. LOL, Im probably confusing you even more now, sorry about that.

Okay, that makes sense I actually IM quite a bit with my msn account so I understand completely...Just don't use AOL anymore and when I did I didn't IM on it...AND on & on go the acronyms...Gotta love it

I didn't know that SPAM could be found on it though, I'll have to let my friends that I chat with everyday know...A couple of times in the past one or another (we do three way alot) would think they hit something wrong AND weird messages would come up, guess that must be the SPAM though it's beyond me how they could interrupt a conversation like that and just **** in...Technology, kind of scary some times...Anyway, thanks again for such a great thread...You've certainly made my day!!!
