[FORUM - PSA] 07/11/2019

There was 1 manual spammer who registered and sent out like ~10 messages.
The spammer and messages have been eliminated.

It was a 100% manual registration with 100% manual spam.
Sadly, we cannot prevent that. Nothing can.

I'd rather not disable the PM system altogether, but not sure what the exact solution would be.
People sometimes like to send PMs. But let's say I put a rule up that only 1+ week old accounts can PM. The botters will just try over and over again.

Anyhow. For now we'll keep the system. If the frequency of spam intensifies or keeps up, we'll have to disable PM.
