Hey Josh,

We've started to get some private message spam on the forums. Is there anything we can do to get rid of that?

Give us names of who's spamming you, and they will be eliminated.

I've deleted all the spams so far. Next time I'll report the name. It seems like a spam robot.

It's an old trick- spammers find out who the staff members of a board are (in this case Josh and myself) and send PMs to everyone BUT us. This has been done on other boards as well.

If it happens again, please do not hesitate to give us their identities. Twisted Evil

By the way, I just located one of them- "wetgirl". I can assure you she will not be bothering you again.

I noticed the member freanour was hanging around quite frequently these past few days. It crossed my mind as to wonder what he was up to- until he tipped his hand by stupidly PMing me some spam.

He will not be bothering us again. Twisted Evil

Believe me, you don't want to know the extent of his suffering.

(By the way, it's my pleasure to serve the community here.) Smile

Hey alarent, thanks for the private message spam. Now, let me return the favor and show you the door out.

Oh, you don't want to go yet? Too bad!

BANNED.
