Oh lord! Someone signed up for Craftster today and posted a bunch of really... ummm... DIGUSTING pornographic pictures! And then they proceeded to send them via Private Message to lots and lots of members!

I'm so sorry about this everyone. This is one of the big 'ol downsides of the Internet!

This member was banned by one of the Global Moderators. (Thank you sweets4ever!) And I've gone and deleted the PM from the database so hopefull it's GONE from all your Inboxes.

I don't know quite how I can prevent this from happening. But for now I've flipped on a switch that says no one can send a Private Message until they've posted 10 times on Craftster.

Of course, some spammer could easily get around this... But this should make it a little harder at least.

I'll keep looking into what else I can do to prevent this from happening again!!!

I'm so sorry as well, guys!

I got notification as soon as he started posting and I nabbed his 7 posts and banned him immediately.  Unfortunately, he had already PM'd lots & lots of folks.

Why do people do this, anyway? Is it the cyberspace version of the infamous trenchcoat-clad flasher in the park? The answer could be some graduate student's psychology thesis....
