        I have this too, all you do is create a new usergroup based on registrered users.

            I believe they have a program to spam members.

              Stephanie registered on my board and PMed about all 300 members

              I don't want to spy on users PM's, so I'm adding the Report PM mod over at .org, so users can report any kind of spam which can then be looked into

                James just registered my forum - banned him at once, I take no changes against these spammers.

                The One-touch Spam Ban and Cleanup plugin got rid of the users and all of the PMs quickly though.

                james420 @ 123mail.org was the registration email and 207.195.253.218 was the IP.

                  That did the trick for me.

                    Yeah, but this is after the harm has been done, the trick is to prevent this kind of spam.

                          I was asking for the website address that the person puts in the PM's. It's not in the first post.

                              In my forums, new members can't use PMs at all.

                                That was my solution as well.
