I received the pm as well, but I'll ignore it unless Im really bored It seems legit according to what admins have mentioned, so I really dont care either way. Just ignore it or delete it if you dont want to take part in the survery. No need in getting worked up over the little things in life. Also you can block that person in your user cp.

Thanks, admins, for looking into this pm. Not the kind of message I appreciate receiving...I'll be deleting it. I like the idea of being able to "report this pm."

PM's or anything else can always be reported by sending a PM to an admin or mod.

I got it, I was feeling a bit left out in the cold, but now I can join the "ignored it" group, lol.

Its not the end of the world to delete it and get on with things. :)

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 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.
