    Not sure where to post this, so here goes:

    Got a notification of a new msg:

    You have a new personal message from mirfirker

    Hello
    *link removed*

    mirfirker is a member of the Newcomers group and has 0 posts.

    (I added * to break the link in case someone clicked it accidentally)

    I'm not even going to attempt to look at the site, so I'm just chalking it up as a spammer, admins?

    Yeah, I got one. So annoying. We should string up spammers. The lowest lifeform on the planet. [​IMG] Hey, there's a game idea for someone. String Up the Spammer.

    I got it too, but I doubt it PMed everyone, probably just all the users on the "online users" or latest posts or something. PMing everyone would take a long time for a bot, it wouldn't have reached me before it got banned, and even if it did I think there's a limit on how many PMs you can send within a specific amount of time.

    I didn't get any spam. In fact, I've never gotten spam by PM from here yet.

    we're trying to find a way to prevent such things (pm spam)
