    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.
