    Today we had a report of spam messages being sent to Member's Private Message mailboxes. Please, if you receive one of these or have received one in the past few weeks, send a PM to one of the Moderators with the name of the spammer, preferably forward the message in the body of your PM to us. The spammer of record today has been permanently banned as will any other individuals who engage in this prohibited activity.

    We want everyone to enjoy their time here, free from the annoyance of unwanted messages.

    An example of today's message was this (I removed the banned poster's name):
    We appreciate the effort that all of you put into keeping our forums clean and free of all manner of litter and ask that you continue to join us as we fight the good fight. We're all in this together. :)

    Lauren, Why not disable that link in your example spam post? No need to keep that link live is there?

    Thanks, hc. Late to the parade today. I think that link came back when we changed platforms.
