Hmm. I can't say I got one, but if I do, I'll be sure to say so.

Weird. And annoying. haven't gotten one myself.
i wonder how they pick the people they send it to.
And who in the blazes did it.


I mean it could be meant in a funny way, but it's still annoying.

FIXED.

A permission was set incorrectly. Now the only people who can send PMs are Registered Users who have confirmed that they are real people.

I never got one. Glad I won't ever now.

As soon as I saw this, I hit the button that deletes any PMs out of the system that the spammer sent. Sorry that a few folks did get it before I could do so.

I have a notification of a new PM, but I have no new PM. Could it be that the PM was eliminated before I could clear the notification? Is there any way to clear the notification?

The PMs were deleted before anyone got them. If the notification won't go away, I can look into it.

I've tried, but I can't make it go away. Don't make it a huge priority. It's just a minor annoyance, but if you can look into it whenever you get a chance, I'd appreciate it!

I got the exact same PM

I reported it straight to Al's Bartender (Brian)

He was glad I reported it to!
