    PM spam

    If anyone is receiving private messaging spam, please let me know.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    As I suspected - my apologies.

    I got the same PM. While investigating the source, I discovered a flaw in the set-up and realised others might have got spammed too.

    Hopefully I closed the loophole as of about 1.00pm today, but given the private nature of the "attack," I'm heavily reliant on member feedback to know if it has worked or not.
