Spammers gonna spam.

And the fact we're running this forum using old, outdated software (soon to be switched to new shiny, more spam resistant software).

I got a notification that a person called ruthchristopher74220 had attempted to send me a pm. As it happens, my in box was full. Feeling lucky.

You missed out, she had a sexy message for you. Alas, they have now all been deleted.

My messages connect box has disappeared from up in the top right hand corner of the screen - so I have no access to sending or receiving messages - what has happened?

It looks like that when the PM system is turned off, or your usergroup has PMs turned off.

Does this problem include the fact that I have no PM count by my screen name and no pull down in quick links allowing me to check PMs. Looked everywhere and can’t find a way to get to them.

Sorry for the repeat...I’m a slow poster.

The entire PM system was shut down (and now turned back on), while I cleaned up the mess. All the spam PMs have been deleted and the spam users banned.

For now, all moderated members (new members who haven't proved themselves with a reputable posting history) have PMs disabled (this wasn't the case before).

All regular, non-moderated members have their PMs now re-enabled.
Good call. No I hadn't.
It isn't there. I haven't sent any.

Maybe it is just a glitch.
It states in 'Your notifications' top right, 'Unread Private messages 1'.
I click on it and it says I have 1 message stored of a total 100. But inbox and sent state 0.
Plus I received an email telling me I received one.
