Removed the Forums

November 30, 2008 · 7 comments

Just a quick note to say I have removed my forums from this blog. I love the idea of forums as a way to get people talking to each other and being supportive, but they take far more work than I had imagined and frankly I simply had been ignoring them for some time. The result of that was the spammers moved in and starting hawking their products, and I really don’t want that.

So for those of you that realized I had some forums, well I don’t any more. For the majority of you that did not realize that – nothing to see hear, move along please.

Forums are hard to handle indeed, I have to admit though I’m acutally trying to put on weight and it’s harder than loosing weight believe me. I’m in the Gym daily training for more muslce, because ofc muscle is heavyer than fat.

I had a forum once as well. Removing spam posts can be a real pain. You’re blog stays though – that’s what counts 🙂

🙁 And I had just realized about them. I understand where you’re coming from, though.

Too bad the forum idea didn’t workout. That gives you more time to focus on your blog now right? 🙂

John,

Running a forum with spammers can be a full time job. You might be better off now and when you become famous you can start them all over again. 🙂

This fits into the category of ending items that aren’t working out as you desire, and that is a smart decision to make. It would be much easier to leave the forums on, but that would turn out to get worse and worse over time, so responding in this way is a way to clear up much turmoil.
