Hi all,

Very sorry if you recieved a Nigerian spam private message on Sunday. It appears to have gone out to quite a few members – teach me to go away for the long weekend!!

We deleted and permanently banned the user’s IP address on Sunday and have deleted all their messages so hopefully most of you never saw it.

We’ve also significantly tightened the limits and restrictions on the number of private messages that can be sent to avoid automated spam robots and prevent any bulk sends.

We’re also looking at a number of general spam plugins to keep things clean and tidy as things get busier around here.

As always, keep reporting any dodgy behaviour via direct message to us or ‘Report this post’ link above every post. All comments/feedback welcome.

Sorry for any inconvenience and have a great week!

From the spam fighters!
