OT, when I just now registered, I saw that I had a message. When I looked, there was some pretty stupid but gross porno pix - posted by "Charles Scwab".
Admin- are you aware of this? Have others been so lucky?
Apparently we've all been "blessed" with this spam-- some of us three or four times.
Posters with fewer than 10 posts have had their private message options turned off while we stand around scratching our heads the admins take swift decisive action to prevent more automated PM hacking. This attack may be the first exploitation of a flaw in the (free) software, so a solution won't be easy.
I kinda take it personally-- the spammer is using Hawaiian Telcom as their ISP. Hopefully they'll respond to Dory's complaints more swiftly than they respond to their regular customers.
Anyway for posters like you the best way to restore your PM capability is to swiftly achieve a post count higher than 10. Otherwise hopefully there won't be any other effect on your ability to participate.
But back to your introduction. You only have about 153 days left to come up with an answer to the question "But what will you DO all day?!?" What's next?
