Anyone "official" I should alert (ha ha, yeah, I know everyone who is anyone reads it here)? ... Any action, or just oogle and delete?

Re: banned member sending PMs?

If it is from a banned member, then we have already been told about them.

Basically there is an unavoidable exploit where users who have the same password as their username can be compromised (shocking I know!)

Sadly there is no way for me to manually query who these users might be, but I know many sites are being hit by this so as soon as a way is determined I will see what reactions they suggest!

Spam Report

Is this where I can report spam? I recieved a PM from the user max that asks me "Have you ever seen this website". In the PM contains an image link to PornTube. Just seeing if you guys could ban his account and IP address.

Re: Spam Report

We are looking into the matter, PM the username either to EP or myself or another Moderator and we will get it to where it needs to go. Thanks!

Re: Spam Report

I found the issue and dealt with it en-masse

Unfortunatly just deleting these private messages en masse from the database will produce all kinds of counter errors :(

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!
