If you know what to do can you please write to Langdon or Bear and ask if there's anything you can do to help?

Holy cow, I just looked at the members online, yikes! I just got a message also and promptly deleted it.

SC can't do anything about this except bring it to Langdon's attention. Fixing it requires tools we don't possess. He has been alerted.

And in the meantime, if you get one, please post the username as a link here. Makes OUR job a little easier.

36,199 new members since yesterday and growing - that is going to be one heck of a lot of deleting!

Judging by my current scores on a couple challenge entries, I'm pretty sure these spambots are low-voting.

Best never to open any msg or email from an unknown sender.

I deleted my "Hey" msg but don't remember the user.

Paul, how did you get this info?
I tried searching Photographer Profiles with DOS wildcards but no success.
I'm too old fashioned.

Just put some qualifying dates in the date registered field in the Photographer Profiles page:

New members

ETA. The problem seems to be growing! It's now 1297 pages. Hopefully Langdon can stop it sooner rather than later!

I got one from a user named Lauren and when I went to look her up there are 6.5 pages of "Lauren ....." (different last names) registered today.

It appears that all PM messages have been disabled...

I deleted the nasty one earlier without noting the username. Sorry.
11/15/2017 12:51:38 PM · #49
When I checked in this morning I noticed I too had an email. It was from Hahn with 5 numbers behind the name. I checked to see who was on line and saw there were more people on line than I'd ever seen. I quickly deleted the message without clicking on the link. This may stir up some curiosity and as the old saying goes bad publicity is better than none at all.

Langdon has temporarily disabled the messaging system and has rooted (or is rooting) out all the spambots in this wave. Personal information was never5 at risk. He is going to implement some security measures to keep the PM system from being used in this way. Thanks all who so vigilantly reported to us :-)
