    Default Spammers and Private Messages

    It has been brought to my attention that some people are getting suspicious private messages from spammers. If it doesn't look right and has a URL web address in the message it is probably a spammer. I deleted this one who had gotten on the site before we took extra precautions against this sort of thing. If you get any of these messages please copy and PM me. Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

    Yep Eternity has been deleted and banned. These people have way too much time on their hands.

    Steve - not only spammers! I use Skype for all my long distance and overseas calls and have noticed recently that I am getting lots of calls from (I assume) young ladies who would "just like to chat to me!!!!"

    I simply block them but a friend decided to answer one just to see what she wanted to "talk about". Surprise surprise - the first thing she asked for was a credit card number.

    I guess even the oldest profession in the world has to use modern technology!

    Sorry folks. We are now paying for some special software to eliminate these type of thing. This one got in before we implemented the new security measures. It is interesting how smart they are and how much time these folks spend at this.
