Private messages

Post by KentJohnson » Mon Dec 28, 2009 3:32 pm

I have recently received emails that I have private messages available on this forum. Clicking the link gives a page saying that private messages are disabled. The forum header says I have 6 new messages; clicking that also tells me that private messages are disabled.

What's going on here? Do I really have private messages? Is someone somehow spamming the 'disabled' private messages?

A forum spammer sent a lot of private messages to forum users during the Christmas holiday. To stop the spammer we have disabled private messaging in this forum. Unfortunately, this will also prevent you from reading your private messages, but the messages are most likely spam anyway. We will soon update the forum software and try to remove all spam messages.
