Default Spam pm's

Hi

Sorry not been around much lately but hope to get back on track soon, just been so busy lately.

Anyway I have had a word with Punky about this annoying situation and a member sent me this message below, hope it helps


Tell all members that they should go and look for "Edit Ignore List option" on left hand side click that and add the Spammers ID in the window, that will ignore further PMs from these lunatics till Punky takes care of this issue. Than go ahead and delete all spam PM's without opening them.

Its Temp solution but will work as the spammer will have to keep Registering for account.

I've just got one now from robert williams. To be perfectly honest I am getting fed up with this now - this forum will lose members I'm sure if this doesnt cease.

People have been told that punky is working on the problem...
They have also been told to just delete any PMs without opening links..

If people feel this is to big a problem to cope with can they send a PM to punky where he will see it sooner..

Look Folks,

We are inteligent people on here and know more or less each others names by now, If you don't know the sender "DELETE" it's that simple!

We all do it with our work computers?

Have a nice Day

I had the PM. Didn't even bother to open it.

Removalware is a scam.

Google something like. " How to remove [ name of scam ] and you usually find a quick way of getting rid of it.

DONT buy the program to get rid of it, it isn't a big problem.
