It was brought to my attention that a PM with a suspect link is going around from a spambot. I took over the spambots account and sent 50 PMs (max for outbox) and messaging 5 members at a time so 250 of you got the PM.

Just delete the message...the first one was from a username "JamesWilliams".

In the past few months I was able to detect spam bots and deleting them instead of approving the accounts and havent had many spamming threads.

I am looking into restricting the unapproved members private messaging. I am going to limit the unapproved PM box to 2 and can only send to 1 member (which should be me). If they program the bots to delete the sent messages and continue then I will go further.

Can't you just make it so someone who hasn't made a post can't send PM's?
