    I apologize for the strange conversations that many of you have received from a member named cuteangel75. I have removed that account. Unfortunately, I did so before I was able to figure out how s/he got in with a name like that to begin with. I wouldn't ordinarily approve such a member name, so it's possible that s/he changed the member name prior to sending the conversations. Since the account has been removed, that record would have gone with the account, though.

    Since I cannot view private messages (conversations), please let me know if you receive messages that you are uncomfortable with, as someone did in this case. Otherwise, I have no way of knowing.

    Anyhow, that member account has been removed.

    I was wrong. There still is a record.

    The account was created under an acceptable name back in January. Gone now.

    As far as I know, she just sent profile messages, and I have deleted all of them that were on the sidebar. She joined last January and just now posted all of that stuff, so I am glad that she is gone.

    Yes, I can see that now. I misunderstood your report. That's just as annoying but easier to track.

    At 0430 this morning, I started my coffee and came out to the porch to sit, read and for the brewer to finish making my caffeine fix.
    1st thing when I opened to the forum was a message that (before coffee translation) said some gal was going to travel half way around the world to seduce me.
    “BBBut, I am a married man,” said I and ignored the whole thing.

    After my wife got up and got settled I told her about the message and she told me that she got the same one.
    “Well that 2 timin’ low down she-male is swingin’ from the middle,” says I whilst nursing a slightly deflated ego.
    Then, a few minutes later, Yvonne told me that she wrote everyone the same message which Really blew the candles out!

    After finishing the whole of the coffee pot and succeeded at arriving at some mental clarity, I found that I pity the poor lady.
    Imagine, that poor lady having to revert to writing everyone after I ignored her message. tsk, tsk.

    I’m too sexy for my jeans, I’m too sexy for my shirt, on the catwalk...........

    It's hard to tell what these things are about.

    Bobby, that post of yours brightened my morning - giggles galore !
    On a serious note though, these people (male/female, who knows) join up to befriend - then will come the asking for money
    not cute enough .....

    I never noticed anything out of the ordinary. It all could be a result of what your alert preferences are set at know about it.

    Not everyone got one of the spam messages, and I deleted them once I saw what she had done, so anyone who was not on the forum early yesterday might have not known about it, @Ed Wilson .
    What is strange is that she joined almost a year ago, using an actual name, and then changed it to the username just before writing the spam messages.
    Anyway, she is gone now, so that is good.

    @Yvonne Smith

    Permitted to remain awhile, some new "spark" might have become apparent in this place!

    I am pretty sure that there are other places where you can find that kind of “spark”, @Frank Sanoica . I think that most of us do not enjoy getting trolled with spam messages that really have no valuable content.

    We have what appears to be another one (or the same one with a new profile ?), doing the same thing and spamming profiles with messages. It looks like you got one this time, @Ed Wilson , not sure if that makes you happy or not....

    Anyway, I have reported her to Ken, and anybody who got a message, all you have to do is go to your profile page and delete it.
