    Eric,

     

    I seem to have gotten a spam message in my in box.  Same old type of thing that one would get in an email account spam letter.  Just thought I would throw it out here in case it becomes more prevalent...

      I got one, too.  I was debating whether to report it or not, so +1.  Now, I'm sad because it means someone didn't fall in love with me based on my running log.  Sad

          Oh, no way....my Racky is cheatin' on me with you!  It's a sad, sad day when you learn your spam romance is over.

            I'm crushed.  I received not one but two PM's from Racky.  

             

            "please I will like to know you more better"

             

            "so I am waiting impatiently to hear from you soonest"

             

            Finally!  A man who's grammatical skills match my own!  But, alas, just another man who's intentions are not pure.  I believe I will go for a run to see if that helps ease a broken heart.

                Yeah, but did any of you get two messages from racky? I did. That's how much my log impressed good ol racky.

                  Hi everyone,

                  The spammer sent out several dozen private messages last night.  I looked into the account and the messages and it seems he did it manually.  If it's not automated, there isn't much I can do about it.  I did ban him by IP which should stop him briefly.

                              I haven't gotten any spam that looked like automated spambot stuff but I've gotten a few solicitations that appeared to be the work of individual people who'd looked at my running log or read something I wrote in the forums--nothing good, mostly people offering coaching services or magical age-defying supplements and whatnot.

                               

                              Easy enough to hit "delete" but if there was a way to to turn off private messaging I'd do it.  There are already enough ways people can get in touch with me.
