I had a PM from a zerka (sp) that was a link to hit named "Special Offer". I felt this was suspicious since the poster had zero posts. I was going to fwd it to a Mod, but felt if it was suspicious, i didnt want to spread some kind of funk. I deleted the message w/o following the link. Has anybody else gotten this PM?

Zerka has been bussed to banned camp and the spam PMs have been purged from the database. Thanks to those that brought it to my attention!

By the way, posting here is fine but please also PM a mod immediately when you get such a spam PM. The sooner we can shut him down the better. Thanks.

Had already done that (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)
This thread is (hopefully) more "public awareness" than anything.

Along the same lines, I just recieved a message from mirfirker. the message content was a link to a system in .ru. I classified it as UNKNOWN BAD. I haven't deleted the message yet. Is there a way to submit it for review?
