I am sure that this has probably already been taken care of, but I just wanted to say that I have just got a spam private message on May 13th from a "member" (probably a spam-bot) called Zurakitl who sends a message to you entitled: New Forum Rules with a link of the same name. I did not open the message nor click on link, but I just wanted to let people know, in case somebody does happen to click on the link, and the link turns out to be a virus. Thanks for the help!

@Edamame - Thanks!! ^^ Yes, as Popo said above, it was the work of a spambot. We killed the bot and since then I guess the board has added extra measures also. I made more announcements on the night we had this bot attack, but you can read the gist of it on Spambot PM with disguised advertisement link thread that's in Board Tech Support & Feedback forum. Anyway, thank you for the report, and sorry for the spam PM. Please delete it.
If you received a PM message from Zurakitl titled “New forum rules!” and containing a link for a "New Rule," that is a spam PM. The board did NOT send such PM regarding the "new forum rule." The link in the PM leads to an advertisement of some Viagra vendor.
This bot has been killed, and since then the board has added extra measures against this kind of Spam attack.
Sorry for the spam PM you received. Please simply delete that spam PM. Thank you!!
lol posted in 2006 and now I dont know how to get rid of it. I must of posted it to the site itself and now I dont have any control over it, but I'm sure a mod does. So I'm requesting it be taken out of the galleries and off the site please. =]
< ^ Thanks, Katya Martin! ^^ To Chiyo or anyone who might be taking care of this, the same poster made the practically same post on another thread in Character discussion forum. Just adding it here as FYI. ^^ ~ Tombow>
