We've been made aware of a small number of cases where members have received PMs containing spam messages.

Spamming by PM has been around almost as long there have been forums, so it's nothing new, but it isn't something we've had much of a problem with here. It may be a reaction to us effectively blocking the bots normal channel of spamming the forum, or may just be a general trend change: Either way it's an annoyance to anyone receiving this. Unfortunately, we need to leave the PM path open for any legitimate users who are having trouble joining the Explorers group.

If you receive a spam PM, please forward it to one of the moderators - best thing is to use the "Quote" button on the PM (so we can see the originating Username for the PM), add any other info you feel is relevant, then send it to a mod. We will then log the details and ensure that the accounts are deactivated as soon as possible.
