Did they happen to have the same IP address? If so, is there the facility to ban this?

As I get older I think a lot about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

Inside every old person is a young person wondering what the hell happened.

Yes there is but no they weren't.
Normally said spammer will just sign up, spam and never be seen again.
Lina was busy sending out PM's when they were deleted which stops them sending any further ones.

I'm looking into implementing a mod to prevent PM's by brand new members

Yup, when a user is deleted, all their PM's go *poof* too :)

Let's see if our Doctorate researcher pops a reply in here and is all up

Norton has been working overtime this last week quarantining Trojan.Zbot email attachments so I'm a bit paranoid. I got a request from this guy but deleted it. Two days later I got another one. Clicked and saw he was new so that one went into the bin as well.

There's been several apps written and released recently to mass PM forum members, alphabetically, hence why some people have received PMs while others haven't (as we've deleted the spam account)
