    Default Spam in my Notifications

    Could I kindly ask for one of the Mods to have a look in my notifications inbox? It would appear that I have some Spam in there from somebody who has never posted before.

    I haven't deleted it yet, so it can be investigated.

    Its rather dull in that it appears to be links to songs, not even some dubious porn site!!


    Appreciated
    Adrian

    I got the same, Adrian so banned the sender and ip and deleted it so we shouldnít hear from them again. We actually get several of those but in post form every day, either myself or another mod has to go through them and ban/block the sender and ip. You all donít see them as they havenít been approved to post but occasionally one gets through. Bit of a pain but if we didnít this place would be littered with them.

    I could probably work out how to get into your inbox but the potential for me to cock it up and delete your account or something probably outweighs the benefit so Iíd just delete it for now. If it keeps happening weíll try something else.
