Jess was a spammer that was banned this morning.

We have a tool called "Goodbye Spammer" which deletes everything the spammer does. The spammer sent you a PM; however, the tool deleted it, but the notification was still there waiting on you.

Hope this helps.

Yeah I got the message and read it this morning, and because I am a wise guy I reported it *hides*
Jess was advertising his new forum, and he was sending to 5 people at a time. Pretty sure only 5 because more isn't possible.

I couldn't find how on my phone and figured someone would report it or i'd have done it this morning. Don't feel like the bad guy. People who send pms like that piss me off. I owned a website some years ago and the traffic of my site decreased very fast for some reason. Someone reported that someone was using my pm system to get other members on theirs, upon the report I found they had sent out pms to almost everyone.

When people can't make their own site successful they often use the popularity of others to advertise their site.

I think if they genuinely wanted to get a "message across" they could have posted to the main forum with an explanation and clarification that they don't want to sap traffic and it might have been taken a bit better. But registering to pm people is petty and shows you don't have a backbone.

Sorry that this happen, but there was literally no way of preventing this.

At least when we used the "Goodbye Spammer" tool, he not only was banned but also so was his IP.
