  • Spam in private messages of the forum

    Hello.

    I notice spam messages in the forum. It seems like buddism is having adoption problems...

    I'm new here, how's it going?

    "Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity" - Albert Einstein

    The user has zero post, so it's obvious that it's a bot. Any way of fixing this? It seems like the site no longer works or was some kind of retarded spam for a hosting service.

    Here are some references:

      I had one of those spams some time ago and forwarded them to Michael. I guess they've been dealt with too.

        Best to simply report the spam to a mod to be taken care of. Isn't there a mechanism to keep bots out?

          I have received a spam PM from a user with 0 posts, Patricia2. With a link to some buddhist thing.

          Please destroy it.
