Is it just me or is anyone else being bombarded with huge quantities of spam claiming to be from this forum? I am just deleting it but it's clagging up my system.

I haven't seen any myself: .....Can you post some examples??

I'll try to get to the bottom of it!

It may be just a game. It may be more than that. But in principal its sending a strong community message to the manufacturer of a 50-60 dollar game, that came with high expectations, that was released as barely playable.Sorry about the spam but it seems like that must be able to be controlled by filters,etc.Im with ya Krazyfrenchman,and all the other SUPPORTERS.

Swampy - is it being sent as PM to you? asking you to accept the invitation to join?

To check, log into the forum as normal, and look at the tabs running along the top labelled 'Go' and 'New' and 'Find' etc. Is the end one saying 'New PM!' have a look in there. You may have been included in a mass PM another forum member sent out. If that's the case, it may be legitimately from that other forum member.

Have a look and come back and tell us.

It was a PM and I was being notified of all the replies. I have altered the settings to stop it happening again. Thanks for your help.
