Just reported 4 spam visitor messages from @pagani88, they appear to be offers of accounting services, in Vietnamese. :wave:

I've logged on today for the first time in a long while and I had 6 from @pagani88 and also reported them

Hi Everyone
Thank you for reporting this; I have banned the spam account and removed all visitor posts from them.

Regards

Interesting. I did not receive any of those reports.

Anything wrong in the system @ Zec?
I did receive a report for a normal topic since the start of this topic, so it is not like all reports have stopped arriving.

I guess something was fixed, as I just received a Visitors Message spam report again.

Busy with the massive clean up, so if you find junk: Check again in 10 minutes to see if it is still there. If so, please report it.

Edit:
Clean up finished. Still find junk? Please report and I will go get my broom again.

General suggestion:

Please turn off Visitor Messaging (unless of course you really use this functionality, though I think the PM functionality could be a perfect replacement).
To do so, follow these simple steps:

Follow this link: https://forums.auran.com/trainz/profile.php?do=editoptions
Scroll to roughly halfway. There you should find "Visitor Messaging".
Either turn it off or switch it to "Contacts and moderators only".

Thank you for your help to reduce yourself being personally spammed.
