Yep, this was a spam attack and it was headed off fairly swiftly but this person did get quite a few e-mails out. Just don't click on the link in the PM that was sent is my only suggestion.

Some complain about our "no links" by new members rule and this is why. We just hate spam (sorry Ironchef ). Rule or no rule - we'll get them anyway

That link was really odd. What was with that site?

I got the PM too and went to the link. I think this was an attempt to boost hits to that particular site to attract advertisers.

It was weird, wasn't it?! When I got her PM I thought she was just reponding to me since I am one of the ones who sends out the Welcome Letter, so I clicked on the link, in trying to help her. That was about the grossest looking oxtail stew I have ever seen. It looked like something you would use when slopping the hogs. I love oxtail soup, but I wouldn't touch that stuff!
