    Default Spam in private messages of the forum

    Hello.

    I notice spam messages in the forum. It seems like buddism is having adoption problems...

    The user has zero post, so it's obvious that it's a bot. Any way of fixing this? It seems like the site no longer works or was some kind of retarded spam for a hosting service.

    Here are some references:

    I had one of those spams some time ago and forwarded them to Michael. I guess they've been dealt with too.

    Best to simply report the spam to a mod to be taken care of. Isn't there a mechanism to keep bots out?

    I have received a spam PM from a user with 0 posts, Patricia2. With a link to some buddhist thing.

    Please destroy it.
