I went to adobe.com to get assistance with adobe flash player that would not download. I managed to fix the problem on my own. However, since then
I have recieved well over 200 emails from adobeforum.com that is 200 daily. how do i get this to stop?
That is rather unusual, since you have only one single post in this forum.
If it was from a different user name, go to My Stuff on the top of this forum, then change the Preferences to not receive any notifications.
You also have to unsubscribe from any topics you are already subscribed (Email Notifications under your Profile).
I hope that this ARTICLE will be helpful.
Going back, I tried to help another poster, and fell victim to about 1000 e-mails per day, for every forum, that I had ever posted to over the decades. Fortunately, that stopped at about the third day. All e-mail settings were turned OFF.
I just joined and posted and the very next day a member from here by the name of xinglv1 sent me a spam email. What is up with this forum? I thought it was safe to post in here and my privacy was respected?
This spam came in my private email not the PM in here.
Someone needs to remove that member now or I am deleting my info and going to the tech support fourms where I have never had a problem being contacted by unwanted jerks!
I am guessing you are meaning PM is Private Message as in messaging ppl in here. I got spammed in my external mail address not in here and that to me is the worst that can happen. What I get in here is easy to ignore, what I get in my personal address is more of a pain to go through span/trash or not.
Looks like you got your e-dress removed from your Profile. That will be a good start.
Also, if you now do need to post your e-dress, something like this should work: info AT huntphoto DOT com, ans most humans can figure that out. To date, spam 'bots do not seem smart enough to, well connects the dots.

And one independent single spam
Can someone please close this topic http://forums.adobe.com/thread/614949 in the Adobe Reader forum?
The OP has stated that his problem is fixed, and the topic has become so convoluted with irrelevant posts that it will not help anyone if more posts are added.
We are having a severe set of hits in the Typography forum, http://forums.adobe.com/community/design_development/typography?view=d iscussions&start=0
Soon we shall have to go to the second page to see any real threads.
Is giving link to other websites like this one - (spam link removed) is spam?
Let us define what is a spam and what is not a spam to help clean out the forums. It will need support from all forum followers to make the forum spam free .. something which wikipedia is proud of ... any spam message posted on the site often has a life lesser then a couple of minutes ... Any thoughs on how do they achieve it?
A spammer, so far only in Web Design:
This user is very angry because s/he didn't read the instructions when installing Flash Player, and didn't uncheck the optional McAfee Security Scan.
Now s/he is writing post after post after post in the Flash Player forum, and disturbing the people who seek or provide help in the forum. (The active posts are now almost 3 pages long!)
So far s/he has posted 21 complaints; please someone delete these, as they serve no purpose other than disturbig the forum activities. And while at it, please stop this user from posting!
