You got one too...

I PMed Xac earlier about it. Glad I'm not the only one who is suspicious.

Me too - not had a minute to read the link. All us FCF addicts with high
%age of posts seem to have been selected - there may be a genuine
motive for this but I'm so jaded and suspicious of anything these days I
wasn't going to jump head first in and actually wondered if anyone here
would comment on similar contact.

Let's see if our Doctorate researcher pops a reply in here and is all up
front and genuine then...

I deleted it straight away, but maybe I'm just paranoid :shock:

I wondered where the PM went (as I had the email notification enabled)

I realised it must of been a spammer when I noticed the lack of said PM :D


I (might) still have a couple of simple anti-spam tweaks floating around for phpbb2 if admin's want them ? , PM me to remind me if needed as I'm not really around that much this week.

I got one and ignored it. The link address looked very suspicious...

Bloody odd thing to be doing a Doctorate in anyway..
