Both this forum and SCWire seem to be plagued with the same virus threats running through their PM systems. I've got several similar messages on both accounts.

The name screamed "Bot!" The title just confirmed my suspicions so I deleted it.

But I PM you! Admittedly, it has been a while since I last PMed you but that's because I haven't recieved one back from you. It's the same thing from Visions of Khas. We'll be sending each other PMs and then one day he forgets and doesn't send one back. :(

That's because we contuined the conversation over on msn. :P It's been a while anyway- I'll nag you again next time I see you on. ;)

Alright. :D

Although since I'm usually at the library from Monday to Friday and I use the web version of MSN that you can use if you go on the Hotmail website, I can't reply to messages if you're on "Appear Offline".

On the topic of "LadyAdministrator", you probably didn't get one because it was random and the account was banned very quickly (from what I know at least).

I got one of these too.

Of course, the fact that it said "Banned" kind of gave it away.

Oh great, though it was only me who recieved it.

I knew it was a fake and came just to see if something was done about. Good job Gifted.

Wow, you banned it so fast I though it was a joke: (Banned) sending me a message?

The completely unknown name of LadyAdministrator + "banned" and "junior member" titles were dead giveaways. :D

Skimmed it, only read Administrator, look at the msg and was like... wtf? How can you tell? o.O Looked at the name fully, became incredibly suspicious. Looked at the red lettering under the name, "pff"

Gifted

Yeah, I think she lasted about 4 minutes. I watched it's activity after I dropped Mr. Banhammer on her and noticed her activity was "Sending message to [Insert name here] And every time I was hitting refresh, it was a new name. After her initial batch, it was a constant flow of "you can't do that, you are banned" messages.

To answer where the "banned" image is from.. I don't know the movie. I have a collection of about 10-15 images I used in my old forum I used to work on and found them hilarious. It just fit :)

I got one too, but I figured out pretty quick not to click it without checking.

I got one of these as well in my PM box, but she was already banned by the time I got it.

So thanks to the mods/administrators of this site you are awesome for responding so quickly to this.

What's funny is, we're typically very fast and this type of thing happens about 4-5 times a week (unfortunately). The less you realize this happens, the more it means that we as a team and doing our job :)

*happy dance*

Suppose it's also evidence your coders are stupid in need of improvement.

More coders to share the burden would be helpful. Sadly, we have few who have stepped up to the plate.

Don't mind me, I'm just taking a friendly dig in retaliation of a previous request (http://sclegacy.com/forums/misc.php?do=bbcode).

p.s. But in all seriousness, have you considered paying your coders?

I think more people would offer their services to you, if you would give them beta keys as a reward ;P

robots breaking through vB's anti-bot system has nothing to do with a lack of coders.

I just sent a PM to LOA, Gifted, Zero, and Gradius before I realized this thread existed. I was computer savvy enough to realize it was fake, its just that profile wasn't perma-banned yet so I wasn't taking a chance not contacting anyone.
