we could receive messages anywhere here other than the inbox, but evidently we can receive them in the photo gallery too... Because I got spammed over there and just discovered it:

And the scam? It's $15 to enter an image! So, how many newbies do you think they roped into that?

Hmm did you report the spam? I know the gallery works a little differently to the main site (somehow) though I've honestly never really poked my nose too far into the galleries themselves. There should be a facility there to report things so that we notice them.

There's no "report" button in there. I just thought it was a little funny... And it's kind of wierd... there's no notification of a note in the galleries or anything... I stumbled upon it by accident when I uploaded a few random shots today!
