    Why post a link from a SPAM? I don't understand.

    Yea I figured I would give a heads up since on the main page at the bottom there are these ?amazing? statistics on blocking spam but it didnt block someone from registering and then sending a PM.

    Re: Spam (not the canned ham)

    I just saw all the reports as well. I will get rid of him, but clearly this is a new form of SPAM we have not seen before and will have to figure out how to address.

    Looks like he got 90 PMs off ... they should now all be automatically deleted.

    Ahh it happens. Seems like a cat a mouse game. Seems like my email connected with the forum has more spam. Maybe they got my email and others. Couldnt say for sure though.

    I received a email spam from trouble free pools today. Looked in my message folder on here and none.

    When you get a PM, you will get a notification email. Likely I deleted the PM before you logged in to check your folder here.
