    It has been brought to my attention that spammers are sending private messages to our members.
    Please let me know if you get such a thing - I can't see them, so it's hard to check for

    I just put a VERY industrious Brazilian spammer (over 100 accounts and over 4000 pm's) to the sword.

    The general rule is:
    Never respond to spam. Doing so just confirms that you exist and that your email is valid.
    You should never download attachments without virus checking them. You shouldn’t reall automatically download any images or attachments, they can all contain viruses

      Am turning on the :

      Verify Email Address in Registration
      If you set this option to 'Yes' new members will not be allowed to post messages until they visit a link that is sent to them in an email when they sign up.

      If a user's account is not activated by the user visiting the link, it will remain in the 'Users Awaiting Activation' usergroup.

      One feature of the bulk of our spammers is garbage email addresses

      sing out if anyone objects

          And there was me thinking this was going to be about the Monty Python song! Thanks BritmovieHoncho for doing this.
