    So it did not seem very professional to me to say the least..
    Point me to the thread in that forum that personally attacks any named individual and I will deal with it. I have not seen a direct attack on an individual there. If there is it is inappropriate and corrective action will be taken.

    This I guess: Out of the blue.. I felt invaded and I felt it was uncalled for..
    and I ran an Addictions program( County IDRC) in NJ for 10+ years so that is what it felt like..the proverbial elephant in the living room... hence my comment

    The "unsubscribe" button does not work so well at DNA Forums..
    Dear Kathleen,

    I have been a member of these forums for a long time and do post here so your 'jumped into a forum here unannounced' is an odd statement. Also what comments were uncalled for that I made? My questioning of the validity of Autosomal DNA testing for genealogy? I did not attack anyone personally as you and another party did with me. One person accused me of being drunk and to put away the beer and you offered to get a breathalyser. So explain again about uncalled for comments please.

    FTDNA's reply

    Received a reply to my e-mail about this board being hijacked by spammers, from Leah Wark of FTDNA. They're aware of the problem, and they are working on a solution that will not hinder legitimate users. I guess we'll just have to wait. Meanwhile, I can recommend DNA-Forums, as have many others.

    Yes, it would be nice if the spam could be blocked. What us as ordinary users should do is not to click on the spam threads and definitely not buy anything from them. Hovering the cursors on a thread title before clicking will usually reveal if the thread is spam and not worth to visit.
