Spam in PMs

Hello everyone, recently we have been hit with spammers who are just sending PMs and not posting directly on the boards. If you receive something from someone you don't know and are suspicious of it please forward it to a Mod or Admin member IMMEDIATELY.

The most recent person banned was under the name "Admin". Yes I know, we didn't have that one sewn up...oops.

Thanks all for helping us to keep spam in any form (except canned!) off the boards.

Thanks, Alix. I got one for an "ecookbook." I didn't think to forward it to you...I just deleted it.

How exactly do we forward it to you? I know how to do it from my regular email, but not from this forum.

When you open a PM there is a reply button or a Forward button at the bottom. Just hit forward and enter the names of the people you want to send it to separated by a semi colon.
