I am really disappointed. I just joined your site . This may be out of your control, but I want to bring to your attention that I received several messages inviting me to porn dating sites. Sadly they must have taken my information and now I will probably see more spam in my regular email. I also have several other photo accounts but have never been bombarded but porn solicitation.

Mariano, SC is pretty swift to lock down on these offenders...itís out of the norm for us to get them...matter of fact itís been quite sometime since weíve had a net sent to many of our users...

If we ever see this happen we just report it ASAP....hopefully no one actually opens the links...it was obvious to me that it was going to go to a porn site...therefore I forwarded it to SC members...and itís in their hands it will be dealt with as we donít put up with this junk.

But in the real world these kind of gross people do exist and they pray on any type of mass target they can get their hands on...sad but a fact. Do not ever assume that your invincible...

As long as you don't click on the link, you shouldn't have issues.

In the many many years I've been on this site, I can say I think I've been hit with spam private messages maybe 2 times? This being one of them? I'm confident in SC's ability to rectify a resolution to stop these.

I gotta echo that experience. I've been here even a little longer and I have to say that this has been the most stabgle site that I've seen.

Not so much the community....... Y'all are nuts!

I'm the only stable one here.

Hah!

Since they are spamming via PM, we need you to report ALL of them.

Ah, I had one too but I deleted it before taking note of the name and before reading the other threads. It began with 'Hola'

Just got one from stacy4w576 (didn't open it and it's now deleted).

Langdon has temporarily disabled the messaging system and has rooted (or is rooting) out all the spambots in this wave. Personal information was never5 at risk. He is going to implement some security measures to keep the PM system from being used in this way. Thanks all who so vigilantly reported to us :-)

Sarcasm apparently isn't funny... Whoops... I absolutely appreciate him taking care of it. Who would want spam emails sent all the time? Come on... I'm not THAT bad am I?

Text is exceptionally poor at conveying tone of voice or facial or other gestures ... I always try to use "fake" tags around such tags <sarcasm>like this</sarcasm> ...

He registered in 2009 and wasn't active until recently. Icons of the Macabre was his first entry. No forum activity until yesterday either.

Correct. Nothing fishy here. We're delighted to have Mariano on board as an active member!

Agreed. Seems fine and an odd coincidence of wrong place wrong time kinda thing.

I actually wasn't trying to insinuate he was fishy...or spammy. Just thought it was funny that he said he "just joined"
