    I received the following PM from a user that goes by the name ErinPavlina and the message went like this:

    Sorry for PMing out of the blue. Here's the thing.
    I wrote a book with a friend of mine. My husband keeps saying it sucks. I think he's just jealous tho.
    He spends a lot of time on these boards, so I told him I'm going to pick a random person here, and ask them, and we ended up betting on it.
    So go to http://books.zenofeller.com/asylum/a...hapter1_b.html and make the call. Does it suck?

    The spam filter at my job has detected that this is a porn site or it has links to pornography. If you get this in your PM box report it to this site's administrators and delete the message.

    Yeah, i think that there has been a few people that have received this. I know ship got one cause he and i were sent it from the same message. I don't know who else, but i assume that they are just going through the list at random.

    I got one too, I have to say the writing of this particular book, to which the link points is rather, errr, how do I put this politely, Hmmmmm, Lacking? Horribly written dialogue, Poor use of language for selected characters.
    I'm glad it's spam.

    Someone get the soft pillows, AND the Comfy Chair !

    User has been BANNED. Site Mechanics will soon be along to explain how the user got through in the first place. Strangely enough, I got the PM right after I changed my preferences from "Only allow PMs from Moderators and Buddy List members." I've now changed it back.

    Technically speaking, isn't "spam" unwanted email? Since this is/was a message originating from this site and, unless you have e-mail notification turned on, only available at this site, does this really qualify as "Spam"? Perhaps we should call it "Hormel" or for the more English mayhap I should suggest "Potted Meat". Then again, for the Americans, of which there are a great number here, perhaps we should go with "Jerky". The problem with Jerky is that there are so many different types; Teriyaki, Smoked, Heck I even had some A1 Steak Sauce flavored Jerky the other day. Hey! Maybe Jerky is the way to go! Depending on the type of message;

    " Hey I got Jerky-ed by CB the other day."

    "Oh Yeah? What kind"

    "teriyaki"

    "Dude, That's nothing. The other day I got totally A1-ed."

    I kinda like it.

    As a charter member(hardcore, early days) I feel the need to put a stop to any hysteria that may develop.
    There is no reason to panic, and certainly no need to restrict your private messages.
    I can count the instances of this type of mass "spamming" on one hand.
    Remain calm and just delete it.
