Just got email from XC_90 and it was a p.m. from here. Link brought me here. Sex thing. (I'd just be happy for someone to talk dirty to me 🥴)

thanks for letting me know, it appears we have a new type of spammer that doesnt post but sends pm's to members, we can only spot them if members report them, then we can suspend their account.

if you pm me with the names i can ensure the accounts are suspended, unfortunately i dont have access to change the joining permisions so once they spot an opening we tend to get a flood.

Received two such messages today but deleted them before reading this post. Maybe you can look at deleted items. Will report any future instances.

EDIT - Just looked at email and it said sending user was "zib".
