Private Message Spam?

Wow. I just received a "special offer" in my inbox. And here I thought these guys were just spam bots. Sending PMs is a real cry for attention... Anyone else receive inbox spam?

Re: Private Message Spam?

Yup, and I found it quite disturbing to be getting it there now too. OK Ramses, time to stop screwing around and appoint those mods

Re: Private Message Spam?

Even if Ramses appoints a mod to every forum, this will still be an issue. Something like this can only be resolved by also granting one or more moderators the ability to ban/delete accounts.

A serious human verification system upon registration would also be in order.

Re: Private Message Spam?

^^^ what he said.

However I suspect that may take a forum update (where he can only attribute the powers he wants to, to admin/supermods). Which bot detectors on reg (word images on reg) will probably also take. Upgrade = quite a bit of work, which means....unlikely to happen anytime soon.

I also received a spam PM. This could be the start of something bad for the site. Lets hope it was a one time thing.
