    sorry about that. I can delete all his threads and ban him, which I have done, but I cannot delete the PM's he sent. I recommend just deleting it. It is never a good idea to click links that you are unsure of.

    The user name that I am talking about is: AndreasY

    And I was taking it personally that I didn't get one. Now I feel better, I wasn't the only one left off the list.

    LOL!
    I wonder if Forrest deleted him before he spammed?
    I didn't get one either.

    hehe, I think I was the only one that got it. But I just wanted to apologize just in case. I spanked that bitch in his mouth before he could get very far.

    I won't wear Crocs, though. Actually, I've never tried on a pair, maybe I would like them. I dunno.

    Our apologies, Piotr. Forrest and I have tried to find a balance between ease of registration for legitimate posters and difficulty of registration for spammers. We had issues with spam at first, but then we instituted a different method of registration. Only a couple of spammers have been able to register, and obviously AndreasY was one of them. This is the first time a spammer has used PMs to spam on OI. As Forrest mentioned, this user has been banned.

    I received a PM from what I must assume was a damn spammer wherein Angs were besmirched and Bulbos were glorified.
    I found it quite offensive.
    If you could also delete and block those people, it would ge great, thanks.
