It is not from any of the admin team.

This will be resolved before you go to sleep tonight.

The forum is not hacked and we are not sending spam. A spammer registered and started sendings PMs to all members.

I will look into adding restrictions on this - I will also try and add some additional anti spam measures.

I have also removed the url from your post (Let's not help the spammers!)

I've received a couple of pm's recently with the last one being received on Friday supposedly from Buzz, I opened the first one which was spam & after reading this topic deleted the second without opening it.

Can we make a minimum post count before you can PM or something?

Not that it really causes much issues any way.
