    Received a conversation-starter message from "Elliot Kim" with gibberish title and suspicious link.

    Chuck-NH, goods, Clark and DPFarr were included in the distribution.

    Thanks for the info, Ray. I went ahead and deleted everything associated with Elliot Kim and banned him.

    We have been getting a lot of spam lately but this is the first time I am aware of someone spamming the site with a conversation. I have banned/deleted about 5 new users in the past week.

    Elliot Kim's IP was from Vietnam. The others have been from eastern Europe and Egypt.
