    PM Spamming

    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.

    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    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 was receiving these also. Will let you know if others come in.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

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

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

    I think this is one of the culprits.

    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.
