    I hope no real damage could be done.
    I think this site is only having these problems because its using a very popular forum software and theres people out there who devote their time to hack and make programs to send bulk messages in forums using this software.

    I think the best (worst?) thing about the PM spam was how pathetic their spelling and grammar was. Yeah; I'm really gonna' do bussiness with someone who rites ths liek. :confused: :eek:

    Many SPAMMERS spell words intentionally wrong in order to get around SPAM filters.

    Under attack? I've been feeling that way lately, too. Seems that there's a lot of unstable-ness around here lately. Kind of sad, really. If it's not someone who's in a bad mood and posting, it's these awful spammers.

    I got the PM one about DVD's too. If everyone got it then yeah i guess they are using a program to bulk mail the members list. I was thinking something could be done to ban their IP addresses but then i guess they can probably get round that too.
