I just got some spam from some Helen that is sending me a message through the forums. Just thought I’d let ya know.

I’m sure she’s a lovely woman, but I guess it is uncalled for :)

Helen Spammed me as well – this is just my second post on the site – not impressed with receiving c@rp like that after just one postherbfargusMember03/26/2016 at 23:43Post count: 1858
This is the first spam we’ve had in a long while. Guess you just got lucky with your timing. We’re going to be getting a new forum at some point in the future anyhow.vfrvulcanParticipant03/26/2016 at 23:45Post count: 3

yeah because other forums have never had a spam registration – how terrible of us to let it happen. You can turn off PMs in your settings also.shoothereParticipant03/27/2016 at 08:37Post count: 131
Well it seems resolved but for future reference:
if such things (or other non-retropie related stuff) happen, is this the preferred method of reporting so others can see it or would you rather have it emailed?petrockblogKeymaster03/27/2016 at 10:57Post count: 1827
For posts there is a spam button. If you get a spam PM, you can click report on the user on their profile. No need to open a thread or PM really.meneerjansenParticipant03/27/2016 at 22:50Post count: 97
I got this spam mail too, of course. Didn’t know this topic existed. What I don’t get is why the mail itself got deleted in the (double) post that I created. Because now that e-mail can be used time in time again to fool poor people on the internet that actually believe this sort of nonsense to steel your money.
I’d rather have all these pathetic standard mails published on the internet so their con cannot be used again. Realize that a con or magic trick only works if you’ve never seen it before.
My apologies for the double post.herbfargusMember03/28/2016 at 00:54Post count: 1858
As far as I’m concerned if people are gullible enough to believe that stuff, they shouldn’t be on the internet.
