My apologies for anyone who received a PM spam just now. Apparently anyone who hadn't been validated was still able to send them out. I've banned the jackass and took away the capability from that group, so this shouldn't happen again.

I noticed one banned member now has an avatar of something along the lines of

BANNED Yes I am a loser

Is that anything to do with it? :D

Yeah, I got the PM from the "new member" talking about Bhuddism. Went by the name of einstein. Not sure if he's still around, if so, Raps he's all yours.

:lol: And funnily enough, the banned twit is still shown as being online, with his name crossed out at the bottom of the front page! Bit of a glutton for punishment?

The bot's still trying to PM everybody. It's completely automated after someone signs it in, we reckon. MadMike's taken another precaution to stop the next one.

He's gonna be really ticked when he finds out he's been doing nothing for the last six hours except getting "no permission" messages. :devil: :lol:

Awwwwwwwwww, I never get spam here. *pouts*

Good thing I have AOHell, Yahoo AND MSN. :lol:

Looks like he's finally gone, as of about 45 minutes ago. He spent a good 11 hours getting nothing but error messages. :lol:

Better yet, Raps checked the logs, and the only one he managed to get his message to was Yours Truly, who just happened to be online when he sent it, and who can (and did) ban his ass. :devil:

Nothing quite like the satisfaction of being in the right place at the right time, and with the right authority. :D

At least you use your powers for Good. :angel:
