Possible spam email from the FTL board
« on: August 16, 2011, 02:19:09 AM »

I was checking my email today when I noticed an email from a Benita Duma and she had her email address as well.  It just said she read my post and wanted to get to know more about me. I replied that I wasn't aware of her and find this email very peculiar.  I then got another email from a Michael Hampton that I he hasn't heard from me in "X" amount of time because I haven't been on the forum in "X" amount of time.  I have no clue who in the hell either of these people are.  WTF is this?  Is anyone aware of any spam issues with the bbs?  Spam like this pisses me off to no end and if I receive any more of these and I'll be signing off for good. At any rate Ill be all over facebook like normal and possibly google plus in the future so anyone can look me up there.

Cool, thanks John.  By the way has this been becoming a problem lately?  Do you know where any of these people are from?  I spend nearly all of my time on the liberty-oriented threads and friends on FB but its still nice to come on here every now and then.

Michael Hampton is a free-stater who has done some coding work for Ian.  He's probably done some technical stuph for the board.

That's curious.

What really happened:

1. Someone sent you spam via the private message feature of the BBS.
2. The BBS emailed you a copy since you have the option enabled to email you whenever you receive a message.
3. You forwarded a copy of the email notification to me (Michael Hampton) and asked how FTL got your email address.
4. I responded to your email with the date you signed up for the FTL BBS and your last login date.

In short, please learn how to read.
