There have been several reported instances of PMs sent under the site administrator name. There are links within the PMs which are most likely to be dangerous.

for the time being we have disabled PMs for all users while we look into and investigate the problem.

Thanks.

FYI, Mehrdad is both a site administrator and sponsor (Cressida Technology). Consider, do you think anyone other than a site admin could block PM's? It was put in two places to ensure visibility.

Strictly you need to be Jedi or above to use the red eyes.....

Of course, if Mehrdad decides to smite you then no force can stand against him....
