What the hell. I was away from the computer all day (I actually enjoyed it) and this is what I come back to. I'm going to have to implement some even more stricter requirements before users can send PMs.

Not just PMs. He's also hijacked the "My first chopper" thread as well

He's been deleted.

Normally I don't delete users, but that is the only way to have all his PMs deleted too.

Can you disable the possibility to send PM to multiple recipients? Or remove ”all users” or whatever from the possible recipients?

I guess in the future we can just delete that kind of messages without notice?

Also there seems to be a lot of users that have not ever posted anything, nor have they even logged in in years (I just randomly sampled a few user profiles). If these were cleaned up, the forum might look smaller and maybe not so ”interesting” for scammers?

This is just a tiny example about what's on the internet today, and it's reach is even infecting our little world. Think about the big picture.

I question everything! My news feed is a great example. I no longer can separate truth from fiction so I use common sense. There are trouble makers out there hiding behind keyboards.
