Oh man, I got a huge scare (and a huge amount of mail) while I asked my mailer to get my mail. I have subscription switched on for almost all forum subjects. I never would have expected such a huge pile of posts in such a short time.

What happened here?

I had problems last night - but they were not associated with emails!

For my personal email box use a useful program called MailWasher to get rid of unwanted emails. It deletes spam and bounces it before it gets to your computer.

Some goofball(s) thought it would be funny to spam the MRC forums with 700+ forumposts containing crappy pr0n pics, and some stupid insults. Sorry for the inconvenience :/

Why do I think djh1697 has the same kind of problems as the spam on MRC? Smile

But it's getting a bit off topic already, so... Thanks for the explanation, Snout. I hope this won't happen again. It''s really not funny to have your mailbox clogged because of some ... ehrm... how to say this politely ... ehrm... asshole(s)... Sorry, I can't come up with a better one and 'goofball(s)' doesn't quite cover it if you ask me. Evil

I do think the posts themselves should be removed as well as the contents. It won't be so funny if search engines start to index this whole list of threads...

What about limiting the max number of forum notifications sent each day to a certain number, to prevent this from happening again? Or limit emails to one notification per topic since the last MRC forum visit?
