    Goon had used the words "active members" when that's actually the "active users" number he was looking at. Ideally, we have no members who are spammers. Once in a while a spammer gets through but not often.

    Lately, there's been a lots of spammers attempting to get through for some reason.
    well, the stats info says active members so I assumed that meant active members, not just users. I guess Its a little more confusing then I thought. Anways I am impressed there is not much spam ever. Its nice to have a place to not have to put up with that crud. Personally the mods run a pretty good ship here and are fair in judgement IMO, but I am sure a few mav and usd fans would think otherwise. Mods keep up the good work.

      You're right...I was mistaken when I said you were looking at the active users number. I didn't pay attention to the "active members" total near the bottom of the stats. I checked the software's manual and member is defined but I did not find a definition for "active member". (I didn't try to do an exhaustive search.) A "member" is a registered user on the board. I assume an "active member" is a registered user who has been "active" either by posting or at least signing on within a certain period of time (e.g. past month?).

      The board has lots of registered users ("members") who aren't very active. Although I suspect many members and regularly read the board but don't sign on or don't post so they may not be listed in the category of "active members".

        Member Prairiehaas send a PM, notifying the moderators he had received a spam message through the PM system, from "Imantapodotop". We do not have a Member named Imantapodotop. Somehow a spammer has figured out how to PM members of this board. I, too, received the same message and I was one of five addressees to receive that message. Prairiehaas received the same message text but it was sent separately to him and others.

        I recommend those receiving such messages just delete without replying.

        The moderators will look into how a non-member sent a PM and methods for stopping that from happening in the future.

          I also recieved a message from the same named person above as well. I thought maybe it was an intelligent poster though as he ended his private message with GO 'YOTES. (just kidding)
