Arriving on site today, I saw I had a new PM.
It wasn't too surprising, I thought it might be an infraction catching up to me from a post that went to moderated queue yesterday because of a prohibited word.
It wasn't. Instead it was a 'I'm new here' greeting from a poster I'd never heard of who actually may be a member but isn't truly a poster not having any posts to date.
The PM provided an outside link, one which I have no intention of clicking onto, having more than my share of spyware and malware irritations already, thankee.
Apologies to the member if you're genuine, but this PM just looked like a bit of spam, leading to my question; is this sort of spamming something that occurs to others here on a regular basis? It stands out to me because it is so far out of the norm (thankfully) from what I personally see and therefore project upon the entire site.
