Who is using Catster for a Litterbox?

I got 3 emails yesterday telling me that someone had posted on my page.

Mom told me they aren't really from my Cater furiends and she called it SPAM.

Some of the comments were sent to my Diary entry from 2008!

Is anyone else receiving these emails? How did you get them to stop?

Actually the emails came from Dogster. 3 came over night.

Here's what one said. Warning! Don't open the links. It's SPAM.

Could someone have just now read an old diary entry & commented on it??

I saw somebody else talking about fake cat profiles, using them to befriend real cats, & then sending Catster spam the other day. I asked them how to tell if a Catster profile is a fake because until I read their post, I didn't even know people were faking Catster profiles. They never answered me so I wrote to Catster suggesting that Catster do a magazine article advising members how to detect fake cat profiles & how to recognize & handle Catster spam.

I still have no idea yet how to recognize a fake cat profile or how to spot Catster spam.

Hopefully Catster will take my suggestion & do an article on the subject. Perhaps if more people write to Catster asking them to do an article on this subject, it will help us all recognize fake profiles & Catster spam & know how to handle it.

we've been getting some strange emails from catster too Jasper. they just have mom's first names and then these strange links like yours. we don't open them and trash them but they are scary!

that's a great idea Bratsky! we hope they work on it.

we sure wish those people would just go away and let us have fun at catster. lots of purrs

I got some of those - I changed my settings to where only members could comment and that seemed to stop it.

Manx so much Jesebel for that smart tip.

I changed Comments settings and hopefully that will stop the SPAM emails.
