Less Than Four amputee online community is a spam magnet [list]

The Less Than Four amputee online community (lessthanfour.org) acted as spam magnet for social networking spam. The moderators apparently could not care less. Founder was Josh Sundquist.

Many of the spammers were allowed to remain as active users and actually used that to re-spam members. I have notified the website managers repeatedly but it appears that they side with these spammers. This was a peculiar behavior and I would like to know why it is necessary, in the view of the website managers of Less Than Four, that amputees were getting spammed. Obviously that was a rhetorical question. There was no reason why that should be. And so there exist no explanations or excuses either.

I am putting the spammer messages that I got so far down below, here, so we can refer to them whenever needed at any later point in time.

Update: this post was written in January 2012. The Less Than Four amputee website was closed in February 2015, three years later.

From Amalia Aug 29, 02:20PM Hello dear, Please my dear, do not feel embarrassed by my mail to you.My name is Mrs Amalia Chesa Cui ,The wife of late Mr Jose Ma Cui ,The former secretary general of the human rights group Katungod-Eastern Visayas, a regional chapter of the human rights organization of Karapatan (Alliance for the Advancement of People Rights.Who his sudden killing on the 19 January 2007 has been a shock to me and my children. Before my beloved husband died, he had been recieveing death threat,My husband give me a sum of 9.5million dollars for the up keeping and the future of my children which i put in a metalic trunk box and deposited in a security company in abroad. This deposit was coded under a secret arrangement as a family treasure. This means that the security company does not even know the content of this trunk box. Since the death of my late husband, the Philippine government has blocked all my acount and my late husband account and also my late husband family has succeed in collecting from me all the properties of my late husband, trying to leave me with nothing for the future of my children. I am writing you because I want you to help me in securing the money inside the box for the future of my children. Since my late husband family members and the philippine government made it impossible for me to have access to calls or to move out of the house as they always monitor me. I am ready to give you 15% of the total money when you have successfully secured the box to your country,for assisting me.So if you are interested in helping me,You should write me through my priavte email box(amaliacui50@yahoo.com) so that i will give you more details on this issue. Thank and i look forward to your urgent response to this message Yours faithfully Mrs Amalia Chesa Cui ,
