All the e-mails are more or less the same - I got that one myself this time.

ID has already gone along with 10 others registered - all are using the same e-mail and we're monitoring it to try and catch it when it signs up.


Not particularly intelligent bots! Sending spam to mods.... "lol".


Can the admin send out emails or PMs to warn/advise all the users about the spam going around? Obviously not everyone will see this thread.

Interesting question. Although given the tendency for the site hamsters to fall over, sending a PM to nearly 300000 users may inadvertently end up solving the problem as the site crashes indefinitely!

Yeah, I got dikayashtuchka as well. Can't some system be set up where new users can't send pms or emails until they've made a certain number of forum posts?

I mentioned that as an option above - but it's down to Empire, really (and they do know as they've been getting them too )

Sorry, must have missed you making the suggestion.  Emails never reach me through the site, I never get notifications when I have pms and then today I finally get one and it's for spam.

You have to opt in to Empire e-mails. If you don't want them, then just change the setting. Empire ran a campaign a couple of years ago trying to encourage users to opt in to them, so it was clear it wasn't an automatic thing.

If you have opted in either untick the box, or use the unsubscribe link provided in every e-mail.

Can I ask when the PM was sent? That ID has been banned for a couple of days.

Sorry, should have checked - 23/5/10 at 8.30am. I did click the member profile and it still lets me into, or is that normal?

Thank you Idavid - all those IDs are gone. There are slightly fewer registered today - maybe they're getting bored

Hi!
I'm using the same reporting method: I got a PM from Belayakoshechka, which was also spam. Can he/she/it be given a stem warning, please?
Merci!

Along with the others, the IDs are getting immediate bans. We're very very stern.

Thanks for posting

This is becoming annoying now.
Poster Kirillinka for "immediate ban" please.
Can you not contact the sites this spam is advertising? Or would that likely just cause more spam?
Anymore of this and I just might ask you to remove my registration

Just ignore them as much as you can. Kirillinka is gone and we're doing our best to get rid of other aliases.

I get an E-Mail each time a "private message" is received. I also get a an "Error 500" message if I try to change (or view) my forum preferences.
I have never received Spam PMs on any other board I visit. Why is there no "report pm" function?
