What to do if you get SPAM in your Private Messages Box.

What to do if you get SPAM in your Private Messages Box.

1. Inform either me (totalmotorcycle) or any of our Moderators the username that sent the PM to you. Usually you are not the only one they sent it to and what we do is go into their account, clean out all the outgoing spam and sent spam, ban their account and ban their IP ranges as well.

2. DO NOT open any of the links in the PM and delete the PM right away.

We have been working really hard banning spammers for 10 years now and occasionally they do get through our security. I'm really sorry if you do happen to get spam, we stop a vast majority of it getting to you, but sometimes 1 gets through... so if you find spam in your PM Box or anywhere on the forum, let us know right away. :D

Thanks so much!

Somebody had to do it.

Always ask why.
