I already deleted the message.

There are currently 6 PMs reported by this user, but as I'm not an admin I can't do anything about it.

It is a spammy morning. Unfortunately.

It was. I reported some 15 messages from the same user. But if new users aren't put on moderated for their first few posts, things like this will happen.

It's strange. Even though there is a proper captcha, you see a long list of bogus new users in the userlist. They all have 0 posts, don't know it that's because they are delete or if they still have to get active, but apparently there's a human behind them.

That's because they are sending private messages with spam to other users.

I already received them, but I didn't open them. I just deleted them.

IMHO all those users with spamlinks in their profile should be deleted. Just get the memberlist and sort on date joined and you see what I mean.

Maybe if you first enter 10, 30 or 50 banknotes than you can become member of the forum.

Thank you for deleting him, but preventing from registrating didn't work.
