Spammers don't stand a chance on MyEC

Did you know that some of our MyEC members report spammers almost every day? Their hard work keeps your club clean! Our members are all over the world. They work as a team to keep our club clean 24/7.

You can help out by joining this club. Report any member that is spamming the club. Spammers use walls and inboxes to spread their useless stuff. They often include links and email addresses. Don't get fooled by a spammer.

 

What is spam?

Spam is like online junk mail. You didn't ask for it and you have no need for it! It is unrelated to this club. The person who sends or posts it has not joined our club for the purposes of learning or teaching English in a community. It often contains a link or an email address. Don't click on the link and don't respond by email. 

 

How can I prevent spam?

  • Report the member by including the URL of the member's page

Top SpamBusters can spot spammers very easily. They often place a warning on the spammer's wall. This helps prevent victims (often new members) from falling for scams. 

 

NEW- Don't Create Broken Links


Please do not link to spammers' pages on MyEC. This creates broken links that search engines do not like. Read more here. 

Beware of the ASSA

MyEC has a built-in Anti-Spam System Alert. This is a feature that we can't turn on or off. If you leave identical comments on people's walls or on group walls over and over in a very short period of time, you could get locked out. Take time to read or watch something before you "like" it. 

 

Here are a few of MyEC's Top SpamBusters:

@Nadira, 

No, it's not good to give a link to her page. Gabriel does it the right way. Sharing a link will create a broken link because she will soon be banned. We are trying to remove broken links from MyEC. Broken links are bad for our site. 

Everyone please see our new group: Broken Links Group. We could use your help.

Cheers,

Tara

Hi, Admin!

I reported the activity of this spammer yesterday. But I see that she has not been banned yet. It seems you've overlooked my report!
