Spammer PM'ing

Post by WebSnail »

Just a note to mods... profilicus is spamming with an .ru link claiming it's a "Forum administration" subject and "Important to read" as the link..

Probably worth smacking the idiot with a large hammer...

Cheers..

Sorry guys. It was over 3000 PMs that got sent out, and we've done our best to delete those that had yet to be read. The spammer sent them out for about 24 hours before we were notified. This is why the main board doesn't allow 0 posters to PM to non-team members. :roll:

In future, please do forward these issues to a Moderator team member for more immediate attention. :)

Again, please forward the PM to a member of the moderator team so that we can deal with it. We aren't able to do anything about it if we don't know the user ID that sent it out. Thanks. :)
