private message spam

Postby Nedrom » Fri Jan 22, 2010 2:49 pm

I get about 10 private messages a week emailed to me from this website from spammers.

Sure I could turn off email notifications, however, I figured I'd let you know ;p

Myself as well. Only mildly annoying.

I was changing the name of the thread in the General about the Quiver Haste being fixed and noticed there was a report made some time ago about a spammer in one of the threads. I didn't see the report at the time, since when I see an obvious spammer like that (was about shoes or something), I just log into the admin panel and delete the user and all their posts in one shot. I rarely use the Mod Panel, but since I was there anyway, I went ahead and closed that report since the issue was taken care of.

I didn't realize it would send you an update like that. Sorry about that.

It's fine; as long as it was on purpose. I appreciate the effort you put into keeping the forum running without spam and other interweb crap. From where I sit, however, the message I got could just as well have been from a spammer, I don't recall reporting anyone for spamming here for a looooong time, and the 'veqtorx' handle isn't something i recall ever seeing before.
