    Spam?

    I got two priviate messages from Chris with Flexilis, Inc. wanting me to sign up for their beta software. Is this spam? Is this the same Chris from EQ? Did anyone else get this PM?

    I'm mobile so I can't copy & paste the message, but I will in a few hours. He basically sent the same message twice, saying since I contribute to the EQ community so much, he wanted my feedback on the software. Just found it a little odd.

    The website looks pretty legit and professional. You could call it span I guess, but if the PM was only sent to a select few, Flexilis might just be looking for some established members of prominent smartphone forums to beta test, and that was the best way to send the message.

    Yeah, I don't think it was "spamming" really.
