  • No, spam is based on sending the same repeated and irrelevant messages. What the Jehovah's Witness are doing is sharing their religious views like all other religious members. The only difference between them is that they like to quote the scriptures frequently as it should be, unlike other religious members who don't have reference to support their claims.

      It would be nice if the admin could see through her smoke screen. It is not spam that bothers her, it is Jehovah's Witnesses and the scriptures. Notice her specifying JW spam rather than just spam.
    • Linda Joy
      Because JW's are the only religion that spams here. And constantly posting links to your propaganda is spam just as much as when the ppl from india spam their business disguised as questions posting links to their businesses. And I don't care what anyone thinks of me. I tell the truth as I see it. And Jenny knows full well I don't mind links to scriptures, just not propaganda.
    • Linda Joy
      And you can stop this just as easily as you started it, or I can go toe to toe.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Linda Joy, quote: "Because JW's are the only religion that spams here." Quoting numerous scriptures is knowledge, not spam. You said it yourself, people from India are disguised in questions. The Jehovah's Witness are not business men who want your money. You are just overeating, because they don't agree with your religious views.

      Hi Jenny. I don't know if you saw my question about Jehovah's Witnesses being tortured in Russia? As soon as I posted that, Linda Joy accused me of posting spam. If her and answerbag were around at the beginning of NAZI Germany, and someone posted one link to what the NAZI Party started doing to Jews, Jehovah's Witnesses, Poles, Gypsys, etc, she would say that was spam and flag it since German Mormons supported the NAZIs and were not affected.

      I already told you both I have no problem with posting scriptures! And when have I ever spammed or even posted about my religion? My religion has nothing to do with this. This jerk is spamming. I never reported Jw's spamming until now! And its his fault for getting smart with me to begin with! And once again, no, the Russians did not copy Germany Germany coppied Russia. Do I have to tell you again or did you finally get it this time? HAHAHAHA! Dude, you started all this by not obeying the spamming rules and if you keep this up so will I! You keep dragging my religion into it and I'll make it my mission to post anti JW propaganda every day until you stop! A new news article every day from a new news source. And you started this as well when you dragged my religion into it.

      No, Jenny. Spam is "to send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on the Internet." So I guess no one can technically spam on AB because there is not a 'large number of recipients' on AB to begin with. lol
    • Linda Joy
      I've reconsidered. Its not right to bash a religion. But I'll flag Texasescimo's spam every time from now on!
    • Texasescimo
      This was my question: Is Putin's Russia following in the footsteps of Hitler's Germany and Stalin in torturing Jehovah's Witnesses? Of course, I posted a link to the facts but you flagged it and it was taken down. I can prove what I said. I will post the order of what I said in three different comments. Hopefully you can read and learn before you try to have the comments deleted and then claim I said something different that what I did

      Texasescimo, I will look into your questions.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Linda Joy, quote: "I already told you both I have no problem with posting scriptures!" Then that's what you are going to see from me, Tex and any other religious member who prefers to back up their answers with reference.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Linda Joy, quote: "And when have I ever spammed or even posted about my religion?" You posted your Religion in one of my questions: http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/3510348 *Facepalm*
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Linda Joy, quote: ""Spam is "to send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on the Internet." The same duplicate propaganda should be flagged immediately. I'll flag it myself if that was the case with the Jehovah's Witness. Every question deserves a relevant answer. With the amount of Jehovah's Witness members on Answerbag, they are reasoning with others in the religious category.
    • Linda Joy
      So a direct answer to a direct question is what you consider me spamming my religion all over AB like the JW's always do? Now you deserve a facepalm! Scriptures is what I've BEEN seeing from you, and I've never had a problem with it. "Tex" as you call him is a smart ass and I don't appreciate him getting smart with me.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Linda Joy, a direct answer to my question lets others know what Religion you belong to. Quote: "Now you deserve a facepalm!" Not quite, and I will explain why. Anybody who knows about your Religion has obviously seen your religious posts. (Everybody has their own way of answering questions).
    • Jenny Rizzo
      A side note for the viewer: I am not a Jehovah's Witness. To call it fair, duplicate and irrational posts should be flagged depending on the subject.
  • I flag spam as spam. If it's just JW's trying to do their preaching, I ignore that crap. Every answer here isn't based on religion.
