I registered to the Kia Niro Forums and posted a photo to a thread. Now, I'm getting bombarded with spam notifications from my phone's Chrome browser. Shame on you!

Shame on anyone who uses Chrome! By design, it is collecting everything you do. But I have to say, it sounds like you have a virus or a bug. It could be the site's fault, but you may have signed up for notifications which could be the problem.

I use Safari on my iPhone and yes there are some annoying ads, but I've never seen spam notifications after browsing the forum.

You want to click on the Tools pulldown, and then choose userCP. On the left there is Edit Options, and you can setup that you don't want to be subscribed to any messages that you respond to. Easy to change.

I use Chrome and didn't see any difference in the browser ads that appear. Can you describe what you are considering spam?

Wow. Maybe you're flying off the handle a little and assigning blame before you have all information? Personally, I use Chrome with both my iPhone and Dell computer, and I know Chrome is considered evil by some, but I certainly have not seen any changes in ads or spam emails since signing up for this forum 6+ months ago!

Thanks for all of the comments. I've got it handled now. When I used the term SPAMMED, I was referring to the notifications about all of these different news stories from the site that facilitates the posting of images. I think I just needed to learn how to post correctly and attach images.

Yes. I think you did need to learn that, before starting to throw words like "shame."
