SPAMMERS: avelin00 or ave123 - do not reply to their PM

Postby jason » Mon Jun 28, 2010 9:29 am

It has been bought to my attention that spammers have recently joined us with the usernames avelin00 and ave123, I am sure more will join with time, so this message is a word of warning:

They have been sending private messages asking you to write back to a personal email address instead of using the Private Messages.

I advise not to reply or else there is a high chance you will get spammed.

If anyone else spots any other users asking similar things, please report the message to me via PM/Contact Form/Forum - this thread.

Hopefully we can keep this under control if we all unite against them!

FYI Messages are of the format of the attached image.

Ho-ho! Spammers arrived! The site became very popular!

May be it is time to think about "Report SPAM" button? Or "Bring to moderator's attention"?

Indeed, I think this would be a good feature, I shall add it to my to-do list!

Haha yes, on the upside, this does mean we are now "officially popular" to attract spammers ;-)

Yah! SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSPAM!
The idea being, you take a can of Spam and whip it at the wall.
Splat! we all got mail. Spam's old naive and lame and canned.
Some people's creativity never seethes to amaze me.
