Dear Community,
on Dec. 16th between 16:30 and 19:30 UTC some nice guys from Russia decided to create an enormous number of new accounts and began to send Private Messages before we could take effective measures to block this abuse.
Unfortunately - depending on your settings - some of you have received email notifications about the arrival of a Private Message telling you how to "Get Paid $10.000" though the Private Messages as such have been deleted.

We apologize for the inconvenience and ask for understanding, that from now on Private Messages can only be sent if your account is not moderated (which is the default for new users).

So I'm actually NOT related to a Nigerian Prince who died and left me a million dollars?

Well isn't that just a kick in the face. And here I was thinking I got my Christmas goose a week early this year. DAMN!

i'm really sorry, jasensmith - the beneficiary of the nigerian prince is me, so you had to be content with the $ 10.000 ;-)

Hey, you can't promise 10,000$ and then go back! Now, with this excuse of the hackers!

I hope they took the time to vote for the Children's Choir for BBO: Ymir.

Happy Holidays, Jasen!  I've missed seeing your wacky sense of humour in action.  I'm not a Nigerian prince, but I'd still like to send you a million dollars.  I only ask you send me a small processing fee of 2 million, so I can release the funds to you.
