Hey everyone! Well, as a lot of you know, a private messages spammer showed up over the last couple of days. We created safeguards awhile back to prevent this kind of thing from occurring, but this spammer was actually pretty smart and figured out how to get around the safeguards. @GoAskAlice banned the spammer, but not until after he had annoyed a ton of myLotters. Anyway, we just implemented a brand new safeguard this morning that will hopefully prevent someone from signing up for a new account and spamming everybody with junk messages. Please let me know if you if you run into any issues sending messages yourself. Have a nice day!

Thank you for this! I trust that it will work, whatever it is (I think I can guess but it's clearly not something which should be made public or it might be too easy to circumvent!) Whilst on the subject, there are two things which I know would make people feel happy. 1) A means of deleting all messages in a thread from one user at a stroke. 2) A hyperlink to the person's profile where the username/avatar is displayed.

@JolietJake Confirmed and there is a second point : I sent you a line, closed the pm, an hit again "Send Message" on your profile : the message sent was now appearing, but it was also in the box where we type the message. I closed again, hit again "Send Message" in the profile and it was not there the third time.
