Spam email from forums database?
« on: July 15, 2006, 05:54:48 PM »
I just received the email below, supposedly from the camera bits forums, but it sure smells like spam to me!  Anyone know what's up with this?

Any ideas?

Me too   >:(

I turned off the message system just now to keep him from spamming me again. Shame.

Sorry about this, folks, but we are on it.

It's amazing what lengths these jerks will go to in order to push their ilk.

Don't be surprised if this desperate adolescent weenie tries this again.

I got it also, the actual message on the camera bits site has a pornographic photo with it.  I guess I'll need to figure out how to turn the messaging of also.
