    I would imagine it is a PM, and you have chosen to get email notification of PMs.

    Human spammers are almost impossible to stop completely.

    If it was a PM, can you click on the user? If they haven't already been banned, could you report their user name?

    I can't see where to mark them as spam...

    I'm sure she was offering $1 million dollars! LOL

    Well, I hope you kept the details, as the user is now banned...

    Thanks for reporting it.

    You can report posts, but not PMs as far as I know, so if you get any more you can either mention it in a thread, or just PM me.

    I apologize for the spam issue. I believe this was a configuration issue that has now been corrected (just now). We've been investigating a recent spate of spam in this forum, and it's caused us to play with a lot of addons and settings we don't normally touch, and I think we flipped a lever the wrong way. O.o
