    This new member looks odd, but might be OK:

    Jennifer Thomas is connected to a site called Lucky Cigar, including a link in her Forum signature.

    Thanks, I marked that account as a spammer.

    I just received a spam message from Marian Karam, her handle appears to be akaramkaram. Possibly harmless, but unsolicited “hello I saw your profile” type message.

    Thanks for letting us know. I marked that account as a spammer and blacklisted the IP address.

    FYI, we now have something installed that restricts the number of PMs a user can send within a specified amount of time. This doesn’t prevent someone from sending a few, but they can’t just instantly message 200 people. This spammer seems to have given up after 7 messages.

    There is a spam post in the Art forum: https://windstoneeditions.com/forums/topic/some-art-pieces/page/7/#post-1638801

    My keyboard is broken. I keep pressing "Escape", but I'm still here.

    Can someone change the title of this thread to Spam PMs, please? It’s not June 18, 2019 anymore.
    Thanks.

    Life is beautiful.
