    Just received a personal message and I would appreciate it if somehow, these messages had to go through some kind of filter before being sent out. The message I received was for a porn site.

    Thanks,

    Cindy

    Cindy: We've been hit by some spam today. The users have been identified and banned.

    Very sorry for the inconvenience! But we're on it, and still watching.

    I'd noticed that too. Or more specifically, they are people with low post counts, even if they joined a while ago (like the OP in this thread). Anyhoo, it seems the mods/admin/spamcops were all over the spammer(s) and have banned the offenders, so hopefully normal service has resumed!

    Thats what I noticed last night. All the newbies seemed to get hit. I have never had any spam, porn. Glad the Mod Squad has got a grip on this:D

    :shock: You mean it's not being perpetrated by Chase and the Admin team to raise extra revenue for your Christmas party?
