    I've been getting them too. In fact I just posted something about it before I read yours. The person sending them needs to be reported.

    Just tried to block the sender but they aren't on the member list.

    I got it too, with the same name. I have never got a message before, so assumed it was spam and didn't open it. Took me awhile to figure out how to delete messages, but finally did get it done.

    It's probably a bot or a "professional" spammer. I got it too and looked briefly for a report function and left it alone when I didn't find one. I used to admin a forum based on the same code as this one and we had bot spammer problems from time to time. Just don't click any links from ppl who are so obviously not connected to you or the forum and you should be safe.

    Its spam. They joined and then spammed their business message in the hopes of getting linkbacks to increase the popularity of their site. It happens all over the web. If you've ever owned a blog, the same thing happens with people posting comments. Some countries hire people by the linkback to do that all day long.

    I also got that same thing. I see they joined today. I hate it when spammers get on forums just to do these things. I highly advise not opening in case of a virus.

    Has anyone reported this yet? There is a little black exclamation point inside a triangle in the bottom left corner of each of our post. Everyone that got the spam should report it.
