I've turned off "Contact us"

Post by Joan » 6 months ago

There was until this morning a little ✉ on the bottom of every page, allowing anyone to send a mail direct to me. The logic of this is it's available if something goes catastrophically wrong with their account, or someone can't get through the captcha to register etc. It's never been used for that. The only things I have got from it were spam. In the last few days the spam level has gone up several notches, and it's only going to get worse. So I have turned it off. If you need to contact me and you can't access your account, you will have to resort to smoke signals. 😂

Or another member, who can then reach me, I guess.

For illustration, I took a screen shot of the mail account I use for this site. It's gets topic replies etc and the contact-us messages. I've me all the girls I want to, I think.

More usefully, literally anything @ CyclingRelated will get to me, until the spam bots find that, or my Nigerian friend comes good with the 30 Million dollars, and I move to the Cayman Islands.
