    Date: Sep 15, 2020 9:37 AM

    Thanks for your note. We are working on it and hope to resolve this quickly.
    The following message was sent to you via the Field and Stream Questions and Answers Contact Us form by (
    [email protected])

    From crm 3006: "|Is there nothing you care to do about the constant artillery barrage of spam on this website? The users, what few are left, are already giving up and going to other sites, or just plain quitting. Does Bonnier Corporation care so little about this website that they will not make the effort to eliminate and shut down the spam choking all categories?"

    I hope they will finally get something done, but at lest we now have a person to contact. I think Natalie is gone.

    Well done. I got the same message from him after emailing this morning. He is the only sraff member to put an email address in the magazine. Other email routes resulted in a big nothing. I was afraid I went too high up the masthead.

        Yup, it's the list of editorial staff and contributors on the contents page of the print edition.

          I just emailed the "contact us" on the bottom of the page, but a few more emails to the Colin Kearns <[email protected]> from a few more site members might get a quicker result.

              Thanks much CRM... I really hope they can get this under control and that we don't have to give up on the site once and for all.

                Oooooh yeah, they're on it. More GD spam this afternoon. Nobody at Bonnier gives a rat's ass about this site. They've prolly already got their severance checks.

                  Just emailed Mr. Kearns.
                  He replied and said they were "on it".

                    That was the point of my last post. Just platitudes while nothing changes.

                    But I could be wrong.

                      franchi20, awhile back, we went through a spate of this "spam-a-lot" invasion.
                      They (Bonnier?) would clear it up and we'd suddenly be hit with another wave.
                      It took about 3 or 4 "cleanings" to purge the site of the "plague"! LOL!

                      Bonnier has finally acknowledged the presence of a problem. Let's give them a chance to work it out.
                      Those guys (virus) can be tough to get rid of.

                        franchi20- Like #1 Bubba says, it may take awhile. I am willing to give them a few days, because this crap kind of spam is obviously sent by bots, and they can be tough to block. They have automatic "block avoidance radar" or some such contraption.

                          Ya know, you're prolly right. I looked back and it was 5 years come December that the great spam wars were fought. Back then, there was someone who's job was surveillance on the site and it took a while. Just normally cranky, and I'm working on getting crankier. Gotta have goals.

                            Geez, these days if you ain't a bit cranky, you ain't aware of what's happening! LOL!

                                I think what you are saying is that our elected officials would disarm the public to prevent an armed insurrection.
