We've had another instance of someone signing up and spamming members by sending unsolicited Private Messages.
I have terminated the spammer's account, and deleted all the messages they sent.
In the future, if anyone receives a spam message from another member -- meaning any message that was not asked for, and contains a link to some other web site -- please do the following:
- Immediately forward me a copy of the message: Click Reply, and enter Todd instead of the spammer's name in the "To" box.
- After forwarding the spam message to me, delete the message from your inbox.
- If you have the ability to contain your curiosity, do not visit the spammer's web site. Doing so only encourages these jerks to send more spam.
- Do not reply to the spammer. Again, doing so only encourages these jerks to send more spam.
By doing these steps every time this happens, we will contain the amount of spamming here. If members do not follow these steps, the spamming will increase.
What if the next time it happens, instead of just going to a bad web site (like the one in the most recent spamming), you're brought to a site that tries to install a virus or spyware on your PC? Do you all really want more of this junk?
Let's all be vigilant against the morons who try to use this popular site to distrubute their garbage, and try to scam money out of your pockets.

May the warm winds of heaven blow softly upon your house. May the Great Spirit bless all who enter there. May your mocassins make happy tracks in many snows. And may the rainbow always touch your shoulder.

I'm going to pin this message to the top of the forums for a couple of days just to be sure everyone gets a chance to see it.

Thank you Todd! I too received one but was too afraid to open it because of viruses. I knew you would handle the problem, next time I will forward. Have a blessed day.
Your present situation is not your final destination!

I got one also. Didn't know at the time that I was to report it to you, Todd. I just deleted it amidst some confusion as to why this turkey thought I'd be interested in that website. Know better what to do in the future now. Thanks. And also thanks for being vigilant. It's nice to have a clean forum.
