Default Any one else get spammed by this cabin match site??

I for one am not real happy to have a spam/email sent to me from this website by a person starting up a 'cabin mate" website

I don't think that is fair to the owners of this board

and I don't like spam

I would not want to join or post on their new site as I can see they do not respect privacy, I would not trust them

She is also trolling the "seek companion" board, answering different threads...really obvious and transparent

When confronted about this she did not have the decency to apologize but rather wants to argue with me that she "did not spam me"..

well I know what spam is...and she spammed me, out of the blue
to direct me to her new website

beware...this is NOT a good start...and really unfair to this site

Default Thanks Kuki

Thanks!

I think that this very topic, finding roomates, going on solo or single cruises, is "anxiety ridden" enough without any more trauma!
TRUST is a big issue here, and when something like this happens it makes me a little...shaky

I like this board and the monitors and I also don't like seeing YOU folks being used

I will email editor

Kuki's advice to report any undesirable e-mail is correct. So far, I haven't received any. Please let us know of any problems.

I did get an email from them. They were very polite and asked my opinion of their site. They didn't ask that I join or anything.They promised not to write again and didn't.

But looking at the photos they dont seem like real people so Im not sure what's up with that. They also claim to be a free site, but have a membership, and you can wink at people like match.com, which seems odd. I wouldn't advice anyone to cruise with a stranger of the opposite sex seems way too risky.But some people do it. Not very wise I think.
