    Received it from a user with 1 post called WorldTrade.

    The gist was that I, and others, should submit stories to something called WorldTrade, just like the user's tag, and was asked to add them on Skype.

    Anyone else get this? Am I wrong in thinking that you need 5 posts to PM people? If not, maybe that should be a requirement.

    Thanks for letting us know.
    That's a good idea. Now that the site's getting bigger, spammy people are more likely to notice and join. Not being able to PM first thing might slow this sort of thing down a bit.

    No. But I did just get knocked off the internet and now that I'm back my virus scanner has picked up some malware.

    It's logged a BrowserModifier:Win32Subtab - if that's any use.

    Looks like they posted an identical message in Writers On The Web

    I deleted the thread.

    LS showed them to the door.
