Got a PM from "ladyROOT" (profile)

She claims to be a member of the administration and linked me to a website that seems to be either a phishing attempt or a virus download site. If anyone else gets this PM, I recommend you don't click the link.[/url]

Thanks for reporting it. I've deleted them now. Spammers seem to get through more often now than they used to, but I tend to find them and delete them within a few days. Their IP address is now banned too.

Rob.

Sorry about that, getting hard to avoid these things.

I have updated my spam-checking stuff which might help. If it happens again let me know and I'll change it so that hi have to confirm any new members manually.

In the meantime I've deleted three new bogus members and banned their IPs.

Oh, I also blanked out the dodgy link you quoted so no one can click on it.

Rob.
