Link warning on our site!

Hi Members~
Just a little warning I was on our resources page reading a piece and went to hit the link for more info and out it jumped. Full porn off the link www.poetmelaniesmms.net ! Iwas a hell of a welcoming for me seeing I've been gone for months. But anyway I'm going to try to contact the owner to remove this tasteless piece. Youths that visit would be shocked so its just a warning. It goes to show you the scammers are busy at work.

Love Laura :)

Happy Halloween to all I've missed you!

It's great to her from you again, Laura! There are many problems with porn on the internet and it is good of you to warn us of this one. I certainly wouldn't want to visit a site with porn. Happy Halloween! Love, Carolyn

Welcome home, Laura..nice to have you back!! Porn is a problem in so many areas of today's world...whether or not we want it, it rears it's ugly head.Here at home we had to change our e-mail address for this very reason...somehow the scammers had invaded ours, and it was popping up all over the place. Now..a new problem... we get satellite television..(there is no cable out where we live)I won't mention the company, however our satellite provider sent us a bonus for being such good customers, and last month...several free channels appeared. We thought "that's great!!:)" Well...you can guess what! A couple of hard porno channels came along with the freebies....I mean....a really quite unexpected surprise!!! Our eyes about popped out of our heads...and we were grateful that our younger family members weren't here. So....thanks but no thanks for such freedom on the airwaves...disheartening that it comes so easily in today's world.
