    What's so fantastic about this market place. I love an argument, don't you

    The market place and advertising place is one. But there are other places in this forum where you can make your promotions. And to me much better, if you are not afraid of comments from other posters

    I must admit that I haven't been reporting spam here for some time,therefore something is working.

    But I can't see from the other side. Hopefully the security is not so tight that it puts some genuine members off. A sort of British bulldog style is not always recommeded

    Spamming in general terms is bad, but what exactly do you mean by spamming at this forum?

    Tougher measures have been made in expat.ru to prevent spammers and those who simply have the intent of impersonal advertising with no intention of being a member of this forum, of which of course we want active members.

    So in return I ask all members to warmly welcome new genuine members as from now. Why? Because they now take a lot of trouble to join now I guess, and well be exhausted when they are finally members. Yes I think they have had a more tougher time than us oldie members. So be nice to them and gongratulute them in their effort in becoming genuine members. And keep chatting to them and prove to them that this site could be addictive to them. encourage them.

    However if you find a problem with a new poster. such as the posts have only one intent as having their own personal greed in selling a service, and most certainly if this message is the same in many posts, then report it by preesing the button top right hand corner of the that particular post. Only then will we cut out the bad guys on this forum. But at the same time encourage the majority of very good members who join this site.

    If we can only be vigalent and welcoming and encouraging to genuine new forum members applying here, only then will we have the best forum site in the world. We are almost there.

    However, spammers turn to new tricks, such as making more or less fake introductions and posting often useless comments in threads. Often, their posts and profiles contain links to gambling, porn and commercial websites. Internally, we have started calling them "Zombies", users that seem to be alive at first, but in fact are only here to spam.

    In order to put a stop to this, some parameters on this site have changed. This has some influence on the amount of posts you need to make before:
    - posting links to websites
    - send/reply to PMs
    - posting ads in the Marketplace
    - some other features.
    In other words: as a Newbie, before you can use all features, you will have to stick around for a while and be active on the forums.

    Creating a nice introduction thread and joining in on a few discussions on the forums should get you beyond the post limit in no time! Please see this thread for more details

    Good information! My wife and I will be in Moscow for two years. We have become very good Russian consumer. When we go back to the states, I know where to post items. Thanks again,
