    I just got tired of them. I submitted a bunch to spam-o-matic which claims to ban the IP's.

    Now the spammers are attacking the PMs. It's some east Asian script I don't understand.

    I tried to remove them, but I don't think my moderator powers allow me to do anything.

    Thanks. What makes no sense is the foreign language. Do they think people on a US website will understand it?

    I received the SPAM email as well. Twice. I didn't click the link that had a .VN domain. Vietnamese?

    Mine was the PM, not email. Can the Viennese send email also?

    I've added a lot more restrictions to the private messaging for members who have recently signed up and also members who are in a group designed to allow for limited behavior until they've vetted themselves as a real person. I hope this helps mitigate this problem.

    Doh! My bad. It was a PM and not an email. The email was just the notification that I got a PM.

    I'm glad you clarified it was a PM vs email. If it was spam through email this would be a much different issue to deal with.

    Should be all set now. I've cleaned up a bunch of the spam accounts.

    Just noticed them. Started to "Report Post" them but seems Lunar posted here so no need to continue reporting them.

    You may have to disable new accounts or take other measures, since they don't stop.

    Something seems necessary. I have performed like 15 moderations this weekend.
