Yeah, I got that message. I replied to it saying " Hi, everythings going fine...do I know you??? I may have forgotten, thanks."

Why would a spam bot send a message like that to people?? What's the point? Wacko

I'm going to need to update the forum software. We are a few versions behind, and I let the license laps. What is the name of the spammer so I can delete them?

The user had a female name so I would think that it was a female.

Carlos, the name was Stephanie. Smile

I have a question though, why would someone send a useless message like that to everyone???

It's much more likely to be a guy who chose a female name to attract people's attention.

To make people click the link, which then presumably leads to a page full of ads or whatever.

Is that email address real? What's the easiest way to subscribe him to a few thousand mailing lists?
