    Spam in the Forum?

    Anybody else getting spam private messages?

    Sorry to msg you out of the blue. Here's the thing.
    I wrote a book together with a friend. My boyfriend keeps saying it's no good. I think he's just jealous tho. He's a big time poster here, so I told him I'm going to pick a random person here, and ask them, and we ended up betting on it.
    So go to http://books.zenofeller.com/asylum/asylum_chapter1.html and call it either way. Good or no good.
    Thanks.

    Spam in my inbox?

    Anyone else get a private email from someone asking me to look at their book they wrote. Clicked on the just to see where it would go and of course it was a sex site. Can we say sex in here : )

    Perhaps you can randomly pick another...ciao:wink:"
