    PM's from Spammers?????

    In the last couple of weeks I have got a couple of suspicious looking PM's from members who are always newbie's with 0 posts who always leave another e-mail address to respond to rather than just reply to the PM. I don't want to seem unfriendly but the one I got yesterday has such bad/fractured English I can't believe it is legitmate. Anyone else getting these??

    Please forward them to me or give me their user names and I ban them. There is a thread in the beginning of General Audio where I mention this problem and ask anyone who receives them to send them my way and I will send them away.

    Adam I have been watching new members and if the first they do is PM members I have been banning them for a while, so not much reported.

    Blogs are full of spam but I am unable or unaware of how to delete spam posts in blogs. We also get spam in classifieds which I can take care of that problem. We also have new members including spam links in their signatures. They respond ot a post in an odd way and their link is shown such as Free TV

    Spam, spam, spam does not have much spam in it.
