Has anybody else been getting a lot of PM spamming lately? I've been getting 1-2 spam PMs a day for the past few days, the latest from a poster with the name luckkyman.

I banned the IP address and all user accounts associated with this...please PM the user name(s) if this continues to be a problem.

Yep, I got 2 over the weekend.



Boss: If I get more, I'll send you the info.

Hopefully that does the trick, but I'll let you know if they continue.

I actually think BigKlu was getting most of the same spams I was getting. They were sent to five or six of us; I know BillyBeaneFan and Heath were two of the others receiving the same messages.

I haven't received any. I wonder if that says something good/bad about me.

I haven't received any.

I didn't get any either, but that's only because everyone knows how big of an Internet Tough Guy I am.

Uh, why are you reporting him? He was obviously trying to do you a service. Not a great way to repay someone. Would you have known that there are "viruses' activities" on your computer had he not informed you? I rest my case.
