    Spam alert!!!

    Many of you..myself included were subject to a private message spam attack this morning.

    DO NOT PANIC!

    DO NOT OPEN.

    Simply delete the message and carry on.
    You won't have any problems.

    The perpetrator has been dealt with in a swift and just manner.

    ...zap!

    Dumb question of the day: I got this one too and I see that it is now gone. I tried to delete it but there is no "delete button" in the inbox that I could find. I checked it off and used the delete on my keyboard and that didn't work. Soooo.... how does one delete a single message in there if one is so inclined to do so?

    Go to your PM inbox..
    To the right of each message there is a square box.
    Check on that and at the bottom of the page you will see another box you can choose what action to take from there..
    To gang delete there is a square box on top of where the individual box is.
    Check on that and all the messages in that "Frame" will be highlighted and just go to the bottom and choose the action to take...

    Why do these people keep posting threads with jiberish text code not in English. I blocked the member and deleted the PM with out opening it.
