I haven't gotten anything, but I've also been here all of one day. Maybe I should take a look at my privacy settings before the flood comes.

That way, we won't know if someone is spamming. Spamming via PM is a bootable offense.

Nope, I'm spam-free. But, until today, I was interpreting "PM spam" as meaning "Publishers' Marketplace spam."

Yeah, I've been spammed by someone called "MacAllister". I just registered and immediately had a private message in my inbox from this person. I just took a quick look and immediately saw a link - obviously some sort of spam advertisement. Ts ts.

(For those without any sense of humor whatsoever - that was a joke.)

@Topic: Is this still relevant or have the spammers finally decided to turn their backs on this forum? Just wondering. Doesn't seem like there were any recent attacks. Since last year, actually. So technically, this thread could be unstickied/archived and if there were still some spammers, it could just be reopened if necessary. Just tryin' to help. (:
