Hi Stephane

Thanks for reporting and sorry that you were among a few that received this unwanted message.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to completely stop this unwanted activity, without severely restricting forum activity and functionality for the majority of our forum members. Bulk messaging is set to be very restrictive, so I think only few of are membership will suffer with the odd unwanted message.

Fortunately, stephen225 was spotted quite quickly and banned from the forum (see this post)

Sign0009 it is important that all members report any abuse of the forum. The quicker we know the faster we can take action.
