I never remembered I was still a member of this site until I got a Private Message notification from a member "zuratikl", who sent me a simple message with a link "Our Rules have changed!" or something along those lines. When I clicked the link, I was sent to a medication selling website! How rude! Going back, I noticed that the user who sent me this PM has zero posts--thus this had to have been a Russian Bot (I'm taking the hint from the username) rather than a real moderator.

I immediately deleted that PM, and cleared my private data from Firefox in case of any hidden spyware the website might carry.

Has anyone else experienced Russian spambots PMing you or posting randomly on the boards?
