Spam in Private Messages (from eddthebrew6)

Folks,

Most (probably all) of you received a spam message from a user named eddthebrew6.

eddthebrew6 was a spammer who unfortunately slipped through the cracks. The spammer registered two years ago and stayed dormant until now.

We have a good group of users here, so I try and place as few limitations on us as possible. Until now it was possible to send a private message to as many recipients as necessary. Unfortunately, this allowed eddthebrew6 to message all 2505 CHBers at once.

So, in response, the maximum number of recipients has been changed to 5.

We're pretty lucky with the general lack of spam here, but some times they slip through. :@

Anyway, it shouldn't happen again. If anyone receives spam in Private Message, please message a moderator or myself, and we can address it.

:cheers:

Adam
