Default E mail SPAM

Im getting a ton of spam via PM from here.

Heres what theyre sending:

Trust me....I am WELL aware of this issue, but I have no way to prevent it. Simply post the username of the e mail here and I will handle it accordingly.


Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience,

Jay

Yeah, I've been getting them almost daily. Different username each time.

A simple thing such as 10 posts before being able to PM would do the trick as none of the users have any posts.

I've been getting at least one of these a day. Needles to say, I'm getting tired of my iPhone buzzing for an e-mail that is just more spam.

I've disabled PMing until this is resolved...ugh
