I received this tonight:
01-21-2007 Please Help!
10:47 PM mickey83

And a response receipt was required. I have seen this mickey83 some where else and I will figure out where because I do not visit many forums. I am thinking that when I posted a list of DC members on the B&B thread, mickey83 was on the list. I had to edit some of the names out because it was to long for the post.

mickey83 needs to share some recipes!

It appears the spammer has signed up under another name. Although my PM spam was identical, the sender was "huamun" not "mickey83". Pretty sneaky and persistent. This is not acceptable behavior.
Maybe ban the IP address?

Yes, I checked the handles and this is the same person. I sent him a second and final warning at both accounts. If someone receives another spam, please let us know asap, then this spammer will be a goner.

I banned both huamun and mickey for good, however stay alert please everyone, as this guy obviously likes to sneak around, and if any of you get a spam yet again, please report to us immediately! Thanks!

I got the mickey83 version this morning. Ignored the read receipt request and deleted the message.

I just saw mine this morning, but it was sent yesterday. I hadn't been on before. Maybe they are really gone now.

I've just received my copy. And I was feeling so left out... Maybe in future, admins, if you are approached about a survey that you think should perhaps be pursued (for whatever reason), it could be posted as a thread with your approval rather than have messages sent to each of us. We'd be far more likely to trust it and would know that anything arriving as a PM should be deleted toot sweet.
