FiberglassRV.com is tops. I always enjoy logging on here where, naturally, the range of experience is greater. My thanks to all those who help run this FiberglassRV site.

However, , I've been trying to learn as much as possible from available sources (I pick-up my Casita in October), and I've struggled to post on CasitaClub. I have a story similar to some earlier posters: I've been a "member" over there for several months now, but have never been able to enter into the discussion. I've tried many time to get "approved" but things never seem to work out. They've been a valuable resource... but the info flow is all one way.

And, yes, I do have a paid email account.

By the way: Does anyone know the trick to entering the Tire Forum on CasitaClub? It used to be easy to find.

This is only for people who have registered, but are now waiting for their posting ability to be approved!

Please email the following information by using the email link below:

Subject = Registration

1) The exact E-Mail Address you signed-up with.
2) The exact Username you signed-up with.
3) The exact amount of 19 minus 7.

mailto:register[at]casitaclub.com

I am taking this action due to the increased attacks by spammers. I am unable to handle the individual emails, as there are 100's of spam emails coming in. I have removed the ability for any new registrations to use one of the numerous "free" email accounts. This was another step taken to eliminate the spammer registrations.

Please do not email any other requests or any other information except what is listed to this email address, as it will be filtered out.

Sincerely,

Eric A. Mayer

This is incredibly illogical.
I own a few sites but "Hundreds of spam attacks per day?"
Hundreds that get by automated email reply confirmation, capthca, AND manual approval?
That would take hundreds of people daily bothering to go to the troble for what, a $0.20 click?
Casita Club doesn't have enough readers to go to this trouble.
There is no pay back.
Forums with 100,000 more members don't go to these lengths just for spam.

I think Eric may have gotten caught up in a war with permanently banned members who are playing with him.
Too bad if true.

I agree Ron, I have quite a number of websites including several forums and we have no problems with spam attacks. It is very easy to add CAPTCHA and I'm getting ready to add it to ours just in case, but I haven't experienced what Eric is saying. I feel bad for him, because these things should be an automated process and not require manual intervention. Once they do, it would indeed become a nightmare. Sure hope he can resolve it.

I recommend people register at Gene's Casita Travel Trailer forum www.casitaforum.com if you want to post and can't get registered at Casita Club. My observation is that while Casita Club has somewhat more posting activity going on, Gene's forum is a great place to go for good technical help.

And of course for all-around travel trailer help, there's nothing like FiberglassRV!

Web site administrators are getting smarter. Spam bots are becoming less and less... although they still love visible e-mail addresses! We're finding, one person (usually in a foreign country) is becoming a member... then sharing the login name and password. Captcha and the like, while good, doesn't help a whole lot under these circumstances. It still takes real live people to monitor activity. There's lots of places in the world where spammers (and their porn) are actually welcome. This isn't one of them places! I'd wish they'd all just go away and leave us alone. A year ago, becoming a member on any of the fiberglass sites was pretty easy. Now all of them have had to institute requirements that are pretty stringent. It's really a very sad state of affairs. Even EscapeForum which is the newest of the bunch has already had one major attack that I know of.

Speaking of spam bots, at a financial forum I frequent this new message appeared:

"Does the dogs of the dow investing theory really work? It worked well in the past, when there there was great emphasis on growth stocks vs. dividend performance stocks. Since the growth "bubble" burst, more investors are reaching for dividend paying stocks, causing the "DD" theory, in practice, to be less successful."

So people started responding until one person posted "OP is a spamer.", followed by some "how do you know's?"

Then the site admin responded with this, which I found very interesting.

"Interestingly enough, she is. Or rather, it is since it appears to be a sophisticated spambot that harvests legitimate questions from somewhere and feeds them to a long list of forums. No doubt the reason for this is to build up enough posts so the spambot can post links and/or images (brand new posters aren't allowed to do either)."

It was later revealed the posts were originating in India. It has six posts, all originating post (no replies), and all asking various financial questions just like a human.

May you live in interesting times!

I have sent my emails, and I've done my sums. I have followed all instructions-- both old and new-- through many attempts at Casita Club Forum....

I agree-- nothing works.

It appears CasitaClub validations only happen every couple of weeks. The latest registration was approved on September 7. If anyone gets impatient... remember Eric's comment about
Quote:
*** Please be patient, your account will be validated after you have responded to the follow-up email. **DO NOT SEND REPEAT EMAILS, AS IT WILL CAUSE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS TO BE FLAGGED AS SPAM AND GO DIRECTLY INTO THE SITE TRASH CAN**
I'm wondering if once it goes to spam all future e-mails also go to spam?
