    My apologies to all of you who got a rather dirty PM from a member named Natural36DD.

    Don't open that link in the PM even if you like that kind of stuff. It is probably loaded with spyware. You don't want to spend all day trying to get rid of that crap.

    Better to just delete the message.

    Thank you to everyone who reported it as soon as he got started.

    better hope you have your anti-spyware up to date and a good AV program.

    if anyone is looking for a good/free one - try free.grisoft.com - AV, spyware and rootkit - base levels but very good for free. i know this isn't a cowboys message but hopefully it can help people w/spam that may come through.

    No, not at all. That is safe. Don't open the link in the PM.

    I looked up the domain he registered from and it has red flags out the wazoo on the Net. I banned that domain so it won't happen again from that site.

    Yeah, I opened the PM (although the title should've tipped me off), but just immediately deleted it.

    I'm sure that's completely fine.

    Another free one that I like is called ThreatFire, AVG also has free spyware and root kit scanners.

    Dang it, too late!!! Already opened it. However, after the deletion, everything still seems to be ok on my computer. have three programs running for virus, spyware, and such. So, maybe it caught they caught it, if there was some sort of spyware or trojan involved. Didn't realize that spam could be sent to ppl on this site. :bang2:

    You are ok as long as you didn't go to the site. As for the spam we do our best but occasionally Hos is slacking and lets one through. :laugh2:

    I opened the PM, but not the link. Pretty suspicious when you've been a member 5 minutes, have zero posts and you've already been banned.

    Hos, how many members can be PMed simultaneously? 25- 50 max?

    I'm getting a posse together. Hos, get us the ip address and we'll track the guy down and we'll go there and give him a beat down, youtube it, and post it here for all to see.

    Let's ride!!!!!!!!!!!!
