I agree. It's got to be possible to do something, And Trulia: It's so annoying I have to suspect it's cutting down on ordinary people posting questions. And if they're staying away, so will your advertisers.

I agree. The spammers are very annoying. I make it a point to flag them right away. Yesterday there were over a dozen in a row and they just kept on popping up. How can they do that when when we have to enter the Captcha?

Agreed the it is more annoying to have to enter the CAPTHA than sift thru the few spam emails
my question answering is really down since they have installed this password protection stuff

It takes extra time, but there really are still good questions and answers on here.

Trulia has not made ANY improvement in spam, actually it seems worse. I find myself spending 3/4 less time here and many days cant even leave comments as the CAPTCHA cant be seen or does not work.

The CAPTCHA is annoying me too and not showing up most of the time. Did you know that you can hit reply, wait for the error response to show up, and then refresh the page? Your answer doesn't go anywhere and the CAPTCHA box is suddenly there. Just wanted to let you know in case you didn't.

Every single day! So annoying that I am thinking of spending my $$$ elsewhere!

Hmm;

This is the first time that I've heard about this issue. I was once a level 3 VIP and once also a PRO. It got too annoying for me back then (1-1.5 Years ago) I left and "wasted" my time elsewhere. No need to say where I went - but as we all do and know ~ there are lots of Real Estate webs, forums, networks and pages to share, post and interact.

I noticed this recently about getting the CAPTHA right, the very old and some meaningless questions too. I am 100% sure that the powers in force at Trulia will get to the bottom of this.

It's mind boggling that they let it get so out of hand. How difficult would it be to have someone monitor it? It gives the impression that the site is in trouble.
