SPAM in your mailbox - PM box

WoodWorkingTalk is experiencing an increase in spammers
sending junk posts to private messenger mailboxes.
any name that contains "Woodwork" or "Woodworking" should be suspect.
hopefully, the links are harmless. but it is best not to open
the links and delete them and block the sender if you want.
as soon as the sender is taken care of (deleted and banned),
the messages in your mailbox should disappear automatically.
but, it is only a matter of a short time, they reappear with a new ID.
there is no need to report this activity as Admin and Moderators
are well aware of the issue and we are working diligently to
try to stay on top of it.

your cooperation is greatly appreciated and ya'll stay safe out there.

Thankfully I haven't had that issue here but I have, multiple times, at the lumberjocks site.

Dave - yes, now that Cricket has pretty much blocked them from L/Js,
they are crawling over the fence to get in here.
they make 5 quick stupid posts then shot-gun the private messages.
the best of the bad part is when the spammer is deleted, all the PMs
they sent disappear also.
just continue to be vigilant.
