Okay, what was up with the PM pictures???
« on: November 16, 2006, 10:42 AM »
I got 2 really disgusting PMs from someone called RobertT or something like that with a picture of some asian guy with clearly photoshopped genitalia. Was this a widespread occurence, or did I just win the unlucky jackpot?

You weren't the only one to get it in their inbox. Plus it was plastered all over the threads this morning.  ::)

Yeah, we got spammed pretty good this AM.  The offender was banned ASAP and most of the damage was cleaned up, but unfortunately we can't clean up the PMs.  The PMs were sent out to just about everyone with an active account it looks like, so everyone "lucked out" with that image.  

We have had a huge influx of spammers creating accounts and we are looking into more security/precautions to help avoid this in the future...

Guess someone was just really bored...

I checked the message and went "whoa!! what forum did I go to by accident?!?!?!" LOL

Well, I worked in the adult industry, so I'm no prude by any means. But when you're expecting to see a PM about star wars, and then you scroll down to see an asian guy with his photoshop-enlarged schlong in his hand, that's enough to throw your day out of whack.

I feel bad for you guys who had to go through all the pages on this site and get rid of those pics...yeeesh...

I also "unlucked-out" twice with that thing. Gross...

Does the staff think an announcement should be made on the front page to warn everyone who hasn't checked in yet?

My first thought was "oh my god!  How did someone find that picture of me and put it online!!!"

Then I noticed he was Asian.  Whew.

Does the staff think an announcement should be made on the front page to warn everyone who hasn't checked in yet?

That would actually be a nice idea.  That would have prevented me from opening this ****** at work.

Heh. At first I was all like "2 PMs in one morning? I'm Mr. Popularity all of a sudden!" But if this is what being famous is like, I can do without it.

Good thing my roommate wasn't around. It might have raised some questions. It's also a good thing I didn't have my door open--my computer screen is reflected in the mirror behind me and you can see it from halfway down the corridor when the door is open.

Ok, glad I wasn`t the only one. Opening that PM was like drinking milk only to find out it is spoiled after you taste it. Off to the Top 5 Hotties thread to clean my brain out a bit  ;D
