New Contact Form

By
Education & Training with ActiveRain
http://actvra.in/4cml

We'd like to introduce the new contact form.  Our hope for the new design is to dramatically reduce the "contact spam" you lovely members have had to deal with. 

I'm sure you will all miss the emails from Candy asking you to love her and Bill asking for $15,000 to help get him into the country.  I shake my fist in the air at these spammers.

When on a member's profile, click "Contact xxxx" next to E-mail.

Contact Form

We love the new look and hope you do too!

Anything you can do to help curtail spamming is much appreciated.  I like the slick look, too!

Looks nice.  I have not been getting a lot of SPAM from AR lately, but it has increased a little.  Most of the time it is someone making a random comment on my post.

AR staff hard at work. Thank you. BTW who comes up with the "graphic" words, some of them are funny...is this a little fun in the workplace or is it computer generated?

I think this is a great idea.  Also appreciate finding some actual AR NEWS in the newsletter for a change.

Love it love it love it!   

Now if the AR gurus could figure out how I can get the spammers to stop sending me spam text messages.  Now THAT's REALLY irritating!

But what if a long lost African or European relative has left a sizeable estate and I'm the only descendant they can find?  You mean I'm now going to miss that email?  drat.
