    A poster named Arya has sent a bunch of people PMs that are obvious spam. What I think may have happened is that spammers were testing various accounts to get into legitimate accounts (Arya's account was from back in 2007) and they managed to get signed in to that one.

    That account has been well and truly and permanently banned so, apologies for the hassle but it won't happen from that account again.

    Wielder of the Ban Hammer!

    I received an email today saying 5 attempts made on my account, I've updated password etc but might be an idea to members to update passwords etc just in case of successful breach.
