    Default Private Message Spammers

    It looks likes spammers have now worked their way into the private messaging system. Thankfully, it is a very inefficient way of spamming so the problem is not serious at this time.

    Regardless, you should not click on any links sent to you from people you don't know or trust.

    In general the moderators and administrators of this forum do not send out messages (except for private conversations). Below is a list of moderators:

    Gee it's funny that you mention that just now as I've received an "Important Message from the Forum Administration" from LadyAdministrator.

    How low will they go?

    Don't grumble, give a whistle
    And this'll help things turn out for the best. And always look on the bright side of life.

    I received the same PM last night and had a feeling it was a spammer, so I just deleted it. Can't people find more constructive things to do with their time. Don't they realize that most people are onto their antics.

    I say we burn all the spammers at the stake.

    How much wood do you have at the summit?

    Will the trolley protest too loudly if some of their ties are used?

    I didn't get one, but Anna was kind enough to warn me. I've already dealt with a nasty virus this past summer that wiped out my comp., I lost a ton of photos ...

    Bob, I have 6 million dollars stuck in a major bank at the South Pole. I need help getting it into this country. Would you help me?

    Brad, I didn't know there were any banks at the South Pole, but no problem. How can I help you? Should I write a check? And where should I send it.

    Opps, I'm suppose to be onto these types of antics.

    Bob, don't worry. I am moving to Nigeria or was it Kenya. Then the process of you sending me money so I can send you money so you will be out of money will be a lot easier.
