I'm not sure anyone with admin access watches this board much anymore...

Yea, I’m just reporting so admin can block the person and their IP address

Thanks! Wasn't sure if you had admin access, but now I see you do... :) For some reason I was thinking you were just a mod.

Hmmm....not sure how these guys are able to send PMs? They get cleared out almost daily. I am swatting the spammers away like flies lately...I am banning entire IP addresses too.

There have been 3 different ID's that I know of that have spammed people through IM's. I do not know how they can do it; it may be a weakness of the forum system. I assure you they have all been banned.

They are allowed because new members with zero posts are allowed to send PMs. We did this years ago so that new people signing up would be able to message about things in classifieds without waiting for approval.

Could change this to 1 approved post or so to stop this kind of spam...

Yea, I’d say 2 posts and it would stop the PM spam ...

Spamming via private messages now has gone to a new level. Bikini clad pictures plus linking to some dating site.
