Hi,

It's been reported by many that e-mail addresses from our members have been mined and used to send all sorts of spam e-mails, ranging from the common Nigerian scam to 'love' invites and some even more indecent. I assure you, we have nothing to do with this. We have not passed on anyone's details to some third party or anything of the sort.

Rob is looking into it but RL has just been a little crazy lately.

In the meantime, I strongly suggest you go and set your e-mail to private so it no longer appears on the public members page.

You can find that privacy setting in My Preferences -> Change Options. It's the second line down - "Show e-mail address to others". Just set that to "no".

Bear in mind that search engines will keep that information for a few days before it gets flushed out and updated though.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

do.

Quick update. We've totally removed all e-mails from public view on the site - regardless of how you set your privacy settings.

Unfortunately it won;t stop spam being sent to those that perviously left them as public, but may help slow it down in the future.

Hmm. Speaking of Spam... Rolling Eyes I just got a Nigerian Bank Scam message in my P.M. box here on the site. (I left it in there in the event Do or Robbie need it to trace it.) "jenniferolada" is apparently a site user and some kind of bot.

I got one from same username, this jenniferolada seems to have invaded our peacefull haven of tolkien and other fandoms. Hiding behind the sofa
To bad I deleted it befor I realised that it could be used against the spamenemy.

Sorry about the inconvenience.

No worries. Smile We know it's going to happen. Like stink bugs, they seem to just pop up unexpectedly.

Thankfully we haven't had the en masse arrival of the gray ones like you guys have, but the biting orange lady bug hybrids are in full force. And ime, they smell worse!
