Spammers will stop at nothing to reach their target audience. I hate spam! I recieved a PM from that user with a less than family friendly photo and just about the same text.
I banned the user and deleted all PM's sent by the user. However that user had already emailed members through using the control panel and unfortunately I couldnt control that. You can go into your control panel and turn off the option to recieve email from other members. But I will say this is the first time this has happened that I am aware of.

Controlling Spammers is very frustrating as rarely is it an actual human spamming. There is software that takes care of this for them.

I have just instituted another defense against spambots to make it impossible for them to register automatically. if some users get past this one I'll kick the bar up even higher. to see it simply logoff and then go to the registration page.
