Sorry everyone. It appears that these are somehow getting through rootsweb spam filters
without being caught. I have forwarded the ones that I can find to them as abuse.
Hopefully they will get it worked out and things get back to normal soon. I'll do my
best to be extra diligent, but I'm not sure how much I can do other than that.
Please don't open links in these spams! You may download a virus if you do! Lisa

They are coming to this mail list. See the archives:
From which they should probably be deleted.

Any chance these are going to select individuals from elsewhere and not really this site?

Some ISPs are better than others at blocking known SPAM. Personally, I've seen about
one get through on this list, and one on another, but when I check online with my provider
(Earthlink) under the "known Spam" folder, there are about 75 over the past
couple days from various lists. Someone on one list said that Ancestry/Rootsweb installed
new software without implementing all the necessary filters that were there before.
