Thread: Anyone else getting spammed?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone else getting spammed?

    Hi,

    I'm a relative newbie, so apologies if this is posted in the wrong forum.

    Has anyone else been receiving "spam" type pm's from some member named "Buddha"? I keep getting pm's from a member of B&B, named "Buddha". He, or she, keeps promoting his religious beliefs and requesting that I frequent his religious site.

    Hmmmmm.

    I got one on September 3rd from buddha! I didn't really care and I responded back cordially but I guess i wasted a pm

    heres what my PM from Buddha said:

    "Hello,
    I'm new here and just wanted to say "hi" :)

    How's it going?

    I don't think he's really buddha though!

    All these pm's were received at the beginning of the month. I think this issue has already been fixed.

    The spammer "buddha" was banned on the fourth. If you indeed received a spam PM last week, please PM me with the date, and the user name.

    If anyone receives spam PMs, please feel free to PM a moderator, and we'll take care of it.

    Thanks much,

    -Nick

    Don't worry, we'll arrange for a few spammers to get your contact info.
