    You currently have it set up so that you get an e-mail whenever a new private message is sent. Your e-mail is not publically viewable unless you set it to be so.

    We occasionally get spammers that send out mass amounts of Private Messages here on the forums. I'm sorry that you got one, but as you can see, the user has since been banned.

    Funny, because I never got one of those occasional spam PMs

    Be happy they didn't completely rape the forum. RIR was hit so fucking hard DreamHost told me I had to remove the forum XD The hentai is all still there, though, except for the submissions.

    lol. I also received one of the shoe advertisements. I also saw some accounts such as "CheapOEMSoftware", I was wondering who would notice this first... At my forum in my website, I get about 25 every week (phpbb3), I also get this collection of users (fortunately, I required e-mail activation, so they couldn't do any damage since the provided e-mails were non-existant). It was a pain having to delete them one by one!

    My research indicates that these malicious users came from APNIC and RIPE NCC (eastern hemisphere), especially Russia and south-east Asia (i.e. Malaysia, not Hong Kong/P.R.C./Taiwan).

    I don't think these people actually want to sell us stuff, they just want to piss us off with spam =b.
