The Spammers from Providence Foot & Ankle Centers

    I have a new nomination for the Podiatry Arena Hall of Shame:

    Providence Foot & Ankle Centers from Georgia, USA

    One of the increasingly time consuming jobs I have here is deleting the crap that gets posted so spammers can attach links to their websites. It might be Viagra, weight loss products, mobile phones or limousine hire.

    What is particularly galling is when the spammer is one of our own. Recently we had a new user (Two Healthy Feet) joined here and post a series of absolute nonsense messages just to include link back to the clinics websites. It took up too much of my time to delete the crap.

    So I nominate the low life scumbags from Providence Foot & Ankle Centers for the Hall of Shame.

    I sincerely hope the negative view people get of them comes back to haunt them ... its called karma.

    If anyone knows Adrienne M. Atkinson, DPM or Dr. Jeane Palmer Watson, DPM, led them know that the spam done in their name has p......d some people off and they have been called out.

    I have better things to do after a relaxing few days at a conference and watching the Royal wedding that tidy up their nonsense.

    Jeeeez ... I just did a check and see they are also spamming some other foot related forums as well!

    What are they hoping to achieve with this sort of nonsense? All it is doing is hurting their reputation!

    I did get a PM asking me what they posted ... some of you did see that thread on headaches before I deleted it.

    This funny....

    They been banned from the Womens Health Forum and the Foot Health Forum .. They also spammed big time the podiatry sections at the Student Doctor Forums! All those got deleted by the mods there and the profile deleted!

    What are these people thinking?

    They have also joined a lot of other forums and not posted anything yet; there are also some of their spam live on some other poorly moderated forums.
     
  5. Pathetic. Thanks for sorting out all the cr@p that infiltrates Arena from the Net - it would be a right pain to navigate the forums with all the unedited junk that gets around, Craig. But it must be incredibly time-consuming and frustrating. Can't we send the above-mentioned colleagues a small token of our gratitude - like a tonne of horse manure or liquid fertilizer - outside their practice sometime next week? Would be happy to contribute in any way......
