to those who may be confused about what spam is:

Definitions of Spam on the Web:

To indiscriminately send unsolicited, unwanted, irrelevant, or inappropriate messages, especially commercial advertising in mass quantities. Noun: electronic "junk mail".

is unsolicited e-mail. The term spamming is also sometimes used by search engines to mean web sites that try to gain a higher listing by submitting hundreds of almost identical pages or by inserting hundreds of keywords within a web document.

Spam refers to electronic junk mail or junk newsgroup postings. Some people define spam even more generally as any unsolicited e-mail. In addition to being a nuisance, spam also eats up a lot of network bandwidth. Because the Internet is a public network, little can be done to prevent spam, just as it is impossible to prevent junk mail. However, the use of software filters in e-mail programs can be used to remove most spam sent through e-mail.

Unwanted, unsolicited email

Thanks for clarifying! Hopefully the person that needs to read that will!!

Haha - thanks for this post. I've come real close a few times to posting the same exact thing for the people that scream spam everytime one of the PT members post a link to a helpful article, workout video etc.

Not that poster, but I think it's helpful when people flag things as spam. I don't mind being sold things, but I'd like to know the context. "spammer" poster, if you're reading this, I appreciate it.

to be fair, it's only helpful when people point out that a link is spam IF IT IS in fact spam. i think we can all see for ourselves what links are taking us to spam and which are directing us to useful information. i've attached many links to useful articles only to have others post that the links are spam, when in fact they are not selling or promoting anything except information.

I still think there's only one spamophobic on here always screaming "spam" whenever someone includes a link.

I don't know. I think it's kind of annoying, on the other hand, I like that someone is so protective of the community because I like that I can come here and know that ads are on the right, and real info is in the community. Who knows what's best?

how is it protective to the community to label something spam when the majority of readers do not find anything "spammish" about that article? to me, it has the potential to keep good information from others who just take the protester's comment as fact. let's decide for ourselves. i try to follow up a comment w/ a link attached with something like, "thanks. that was a useful link." or something like that. but when i think it's not useful or has ulterior motives, i state something like, "i don't find this helpful. it's trying to sell me something." that acts as an alert to others with much more information about the site than just shouting spam, spam, spam.

1.36 and 1.46, I think you're still not getting what spam is. Spam is unsolicited EMAILS. Not commercial sites. Spam is sent to your inbox. Or, as the OP posts, it is abuse of search engine algorithms... hosting ghost pages in attempt to boost ranking on the engines.

Just clarifying...

Or a forum version of spam is.....

A post that is blatant advertising. Posting something here in the lounge for the sole purpose of advertising and promoting.

The spam accusations I have seen here have been PT members trying to add to the discussion of the original thread intent not someone blatantly advertising.

The term spam refers to unsolicated commercial advertisments distributed online. Most spam comes to people via email, but spam can also be found in online chat rooms and message boards.

this needs to penetrate some minds so we lose the "this is spam" comments. or at least lose those that are incorrectly called spam.
