Actually, you stumbled across something that's worse than I originally thought. We're being spammed by robots. It looks like there are several dozen different user names sending out this garbage. I just disabled private messaging for newbies.

Working on it... since I deleted the messages another 30 have been sent. I'm working on blocking their IP.Some of the accounts were created over 3 weeks ago.

The problem is it's coming from too many different IP addresses.

I've shut it down... at least for now. Up till now newbies that had been here < 2 days were considered probationary. Now that includes newbies without any posts as well. The probationary usergroup also no longer has permission to use private messaging. Since none of these accounts had any posts, they can no longer send private messages and hopefully this won't happen again. Of course this means legitimate newbies can't use private messages either, but what can you do?

99 out of 100 noobs don't even know what a PM is. So once they post their welcome in the noob section, they should be good to go once they figure out how to do it.
