Yesterday's spam PMs

Recommended Posts

A number of spam PMs were sent out yesterday. Please do not click on any links in PMs from unknown members.

 

A new flood control update was released by the forum software company.

Now after sending one PM you have to wait 5 minutes to send another.

 

Hopefully this will stop PM spam, like previous update stopped spam posts.

I hope that is only for new members otherwise it could prove a hassle for members like myself... :ninja:

Clive, are you really sending PMs that often? I can't tell if you're joking.

If I send a reply to a PM, I often receive another within a minute or two and so will have to wait to send another.

 

Or if I want to send a PM to two different people I will have to wait. Not a big deal, I was just wondering whether it could be applied to just the new members.

PMs are accessible again.

 

The 5 minute delay applies to everyone, unfortunately.

Hello!

 

What is your deffinition of SPAM and why is my reply to the statement..."hope it repilies only to newbies", called spam. I being a newbie replied as I did. Spam to me is flooding mail boxes with unwanted emails.

 

How is a reply a spam? I thought PMs were Private Messages, of which I didn't send. Did I post in wrong place, hit a wrong button?

 

I did not intend to do anything wrong with that one reply. Set me straight and fill in my ignorant voids.

 

Thank you,
