Thank you for taking care of it so quickly! I was one of the unfortunates who saw & reported his posts and was amazed at how fast they were deleted!

I wonder how "He" chose his victims...alphabetical or what  Huh

Thanks, mods, for being on top of things!

Same here. Thanks Leah and team!

As for the chosing...I don't think I want to know

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

Yeah, I got one of those private messages, too. Was a bit unexpected.

Did it send all of the private messages at once? Because, I'd think a flood timer type deal on private messages would atleast hinder the bot for a bit. Assuming SMF doesn't already implement one of those.

There is some sort of flood control but I wonder if the spammer timed it so that he sent them every X seconds and got around it.

Wow, yesterday I checked my email and wondered...uhm, why would I receive a private message...I'm a newbie.  I started reading the names  of some of the links and was suspicious. 

I've just had an opportunity to visit crafster and glad to know you are taking care of us.  It is much appreciated.  Thanks a bunch!
