Thanks for the heads-up on that. That member has been banned. If anyone else gets a PM like, simply delete it, no need to report it.

Damn! I checked and "she" sent out 348 of those PM's! I hope this isn't the new trend in spamming.

Do we have a CAPTCHA or something in the registration process to impede bots from registering?

These days, though, folks can just go on Amazon and pay someone pennies per account to register website accounts for them.
