    The last couple of days my alerts has been filled up with crap I dont want to know about.

    It goes like this.

    "M*nd W*rs has started a new thread entitled " Breaking: Obama starts war somewhere over something"

    Ive starred out his name save showing him up.

    How can I stop being alerted about crap ? Ive crossed off everything on my alert settings but I am still getting this spam.

    If I could sort this out it would make my USMB experience all the better until my next arbitrary ban.

    Tommy Tainant I see you were getting Alert Spams of Mindwars and others started a new thread. Like you I don't follow anyone either. Did you ever find a resolution to the spamming. The mods don't seem to know how to fix it either. I can even find where you set Alert criteria.

    Use the drop down under your avie in the TOP RIGHT bar. Go to "alert preferences". Hit "watched forums" and watched threads.. You may have hit a watch long ago on a forum or thread and some threads get revived quite often.

    I cant remember what the actual problem was. To be honest I forget where I have parked my car some days.
