I received two private messages via the forum from a lady declaring her love for me. I doubt very much that it was genuine even though i am irresistible and it is full understandable that women should fall over heels for me…but i think realistically , it is spam. I'm sure others have received the same but perhaps too smitten or shy to acknowledge them
I thought i just notify you of this breach.June 6, 2014 at 5:19 am #102006

Awwww…Is no-body going to take the risk of getting a virus by replying to the poor wee soul? Has romance died on the forum…June 6, 2014 at 8:10 am #102011jondwhiteParticipant

Have you not been watching the news? It may have something to do with the expected cyber attackOr just missed opportunities….. ..June 6, 2014 at 10:23 am #102013rodshawParticipant
I got three of them.But how do you know it's a woman?June 6, 2014 at 2:49 pm #102014J SurmanParticipant
And I thought it was just me! I got the one described above twice. We're also getting too many similar ones as comments on the blog. I did ask the internet committee if anything could be done about it but didn't get a reply.June 6, 2014 at 6:31 pm #102015Darren redstarParticipant
He/ she certainly gets around. Mine arrived mid morning, made my wife laugh at least.June 8, 2014 at 6:18 pm #102016SocialistPunkParticipant
Hi Alan and everyone else who have been the recipients of the Love Bug.Did the msg appear in your private email list as being a private msg from the forum, yet do not appear in your forum website private msg box?June 8, 2014 at 6:47 pm #102017rodshawParticipant
That is certainly the case for me.June 8, 2014 at 7:33 pm #102018PJShannonKeymasterSocialistPunk wrote:Hi Alan and everyone else who have been the recipients of the Love Bug.Did the msg appear in your private email list as being a private msg from the forum, yet do not appear in your forum website private msg box?
That would be because the user account was deleted as soon as we became aware of the issue. Normally our spambot filters work pretty well. Apologies for this one that slipped through.June 9, 2014 at 3:51 pm #102019J SurmanParticipant
Just in my private email list. I didn't know about the forum website private msg box until reading your msg! So, just found it to check – it's not there.I don't want another box to have to open on a regular basis so I shan't be looking there again. Surely we've got more than enough avenues already for contacting each other?
