It was from someone named Guitarlady or something like that. It basically says that your computer has a virus and wants you to click on a link. I did NOT click on the link and deleted the message.

Just an FYI.

Yes it was from a tw@t called AdminLady, the same spammer has been doing the same on other forums.

I deleted the user, I guess that is how they are getting around the new security around here....using PM's instead of posts. I'll keep an eye out I promise.

Disturbing...
Fact remains they got a membership to begin with. This is not aimed at Jesse, let's make that clear but... How in hell do these jerkoffs get on board?

Adminlady - that douchebag!! I figured it was bullshit and didn't click on the link either, but I got nervous for a second there...

there is no virus on your computer, and I would have no way of knowing even if there was...obvious spam please ignore and I will delete when notified.

does spamming even pay off? I mean, really...who would actually purchase a product from this type of advertising

You know what? I used to get calls on my cell from jerkoffs trying to sell me lawn equipment and chainsaws and stuff (I'm in landscaping) and these guys are relentless. Pity that all they achieved is me getting my stuff at the competition.
So... no!
