SPAM ALERT: Private Message Spamming Loophole

Postby rdearman » Wed Mar 17, 2021 6:05 pm

Some of you may have recently received a PM from a spammer asking you to contact them on an email address. Please do not contact them. If you did receive this PM you can just delete it. The spam account has been deleted and the loophole they used to send a message has now been closed. However, the closing of this loophole means that if you lose your password you must use the Facebook page to request a new one. See this thread for contact details.

I went to the FB link and tried to "Like" it, but FB says that "This content isn't available now."

OK, Serpent normally runs that, so I'll ask her to check into it. Thanks for the heads-up.
