I'm not sure if what I received just now is the same thing, but it certainly looks similar to what has been going on on some other forums. Accounts with names like SYSTEMADMIN or DUDEGUYMODERATOR send private messages and if you open them you get all kinds of diseases and send everyone in your contacts list a bunch of emails or something. Is there any way you can ban the use of "admin" or "moderator" in usernames to stop this bullshit?

Yep, good call Sacks... I just added those to the banned user names list. I received a PM from a "RootModerator" telling me that I had a virus on my computer.

Fortunately, in addition to banning these users, we have the ability to instantly delete every PM they sent out... so I always delete all of their PMs right after I'm done banning 'em.

Please keep posting in this thread about any users who send spam via PM. Not only can we ban them, but we can instantly delete every message they sent out before the majority of users have a chance to even read 'em. Thanks!
