    MiceChat email being used for spamming

    Has anyone else received unsolicited spam from another MiceChat member via MiceChat email? Not seeing a clear method for reporting, I pasted the entire message with headers into a message for MiceChat administrators using the the "Contact us" link.

    I also used spamcop to report the spamvertised web site.

    Assuming spamming in this way is a violation of the rules, is there anything else I might have done?

    Yes, I got one of those emails. When I searched out the author Monorail Man had already banned them. But if anyone gets anymore please so what Trekkie did... and let us know so we can help track down these spammers and get rid of them!

    I did look up the member. No posts, no profile data to speak of, other than date joined and last activity. MM hasn't banned the member yet.

    I got one this morning and immediately deleted. I knew it wasn't something that would have been sent from this site officially!
