It is with great sadness that this site has been temporarily shut down due to the excessive amount of spam that is being generated by this site. Last year, I was finally forced to change my personal e-mail address due to the fact that I was receiving up to three hundred(!!!) spam e-mail messages EVERYDAY! At that time, I also decided to try an experiment in order to determine where this spam was coming from - I manage several web sites and gave each one their own, unique, e-mail accounts so that I could trace where the spammers were obtaining my address. For awhile, the amount of spam I received plunged, however, during the past few months, it has started to skyrocket again. What I discovered was that nearly all of the spam I was receiving was being generated by sites on Rootsweb servers, with the bulk of that coming directly from this site. At this time, approximately 80- 90 percent of ALL spam I'm receiving comes from this site.
As a result, I have no other choice than to temporarily shut down this site while I find another way for people to submit their surnames in a more secure manner. It is really a shame that the unethical people who generate spam have to ruin things for others. I would GREATLY appreciate any suggestions you may have!
