@craig — good to hear you got things sorted. And to reiterate, if you ever need contributions for the site you really only have to ask…5 January 2016 at 09:24 #500035 January 2016 at 17:31 #50007ichabod @ichabod
@craig Thanks! So glad we’re back on track again. We all share in the joy, I think. Happy New Year!7 February 2016 at 13:30 #508867 February 2016 at 15:05 #50891
There should hopefully be a new news page up and running as the last one had reached the end of its tether….1 March 2016 at 10:11 #51129Bluesqueakpip @bluesqueakpip1 March 2016 at 10:12 #51130Anonymous @
@craig someone new called @robbins PMed me and possibly others? asking that I contact them on their private email as they ‘liked my profile.’
I think I’ve been spammed? 🙂1 March 2016 at 10:13 #51131Anonymous @

I received the same message. Sadly, not “the one” after all.2 March 2016 at 00:02 #51141
@everyone I don’t even have much of a profile so I wondered why anyone would be that interested. Sadly I was just one of many.2 March 2016 at 00:16 #51143
@ everyone also. Just thought I’d drop you a line to explain my absence. I’m still kinda here but haven’t had much time recently to do much on the site. Was in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago, Pittsburgh last week and am back to Pennsylvania, this time Philadelphia, on Saturday. Thankfully my world should calm down after that and we can get back to our retrospectives, and rewatches of BG Who. The only good thing about all this is I’m now a British Airways Gold member so get to use the lounge and sometimes get upgraded. But can’t wait for the end of next week and to be back with all of you.2 March 2016 at 00:58 #51145Anonymous @
gosh! you have the jet-setting life. From to Pitts to Philly and in lounges ‘n’ all 🙂
It will be good to have some retrospectives and to have you back with us all. You’ve been missed.
Safe travels home.
No, I kid. Just in case the naughty robbinsss is listening.
We don’t do PMs to people we don’t know Robbins! This is a Who Forum only. No piccies.
Kindest to all.

@puroandson Yeah, sounds great, doesn’t it? Sometimes the quiet life is much more appealing. Be back properly soon.
Biggest kindest to you.2 March 2016 at 23:58 #511553 March 2016 at 02:37 #51159Arbutus @arbutus
@winston I quite seriously thought you said “happy trolls”. And that “you have been busy” was somehow referring to yesterday’s spammer. And it all made sense somehow, for about 10 seconds. 🙂3 March 2016 at 03:23 #511628 March 2016 at 23:36 #5123429 March 2016 at 19:08 #5152529 March 2016 at 21:31 #5153430 March 2016 at 10:09 #51541
Phew, thank you. I didn’t know what to do, so just ignored the message.

@jilso11 known also as Valeria wants to be my friend. I bet she wants to be your friend either. Oh wait, it’s adanna again.20 April 2016 at 20:21 #51750
Thanks @mersey have spammed them. I got the same. As usual, to everyone else, do not reply to the lovely lady in the United Nations Army. Is she in UNIT? More likely some prince who also has $1 billion he needs to deposit in your bank account.20 April 2016 at 20:52 #51751Anonymous @
Ah, too bad I didn’t read this first, as it would have saved me some time, but I guessed it was spam, particularly after I clicked on the profile link and discovered there was none! ^^ But thanks for the heads up. 🙂 I shall keep that in mind.20 April 2016 at 21:54 #51752
@stitchintime Unfortunately this happens sometimes. It’s not a bot, a real person signs up and then sends these messages out. The only way to stop it would be to turn off the messaging function but the consensus seems to be that it’s a nice function to have, even if spammers sometimes abuse it. Always comment here or email me if you receive something dodgy and I will spam them immediately.
In the past I’ve found out that the same spammers have been posting the same things on forums for Doctors. Think they may have us confused with lonely, rich men who work in hospitals.20 April 2016 at 23:01 #51753
Ah, I should have known. Another one bites the dust, LOL!21 April 2016 at 04:47 #51757
Thank you Craig.

Yes, very confused indeed!
Thanks for the information.
I suppose then that you must be the, “terminator,” around here. 😉22 April 2016 at 19:10 #51784
Miss Tina aka loveuu has sent me (and presumably a bunch of other people here) a message that I suspect none of us wanted in the first place.
What’s bringing them out of the woodwork? The spring weather? The imminent announcement of a new Companion? A desperate attempt to trawl for the odd sucker, who really wants to donate their life savings to allow a Nigerian prince the opportunity to retrieve his inheritance and share it?23 April 2016 at 00:11 #51787Anonymous @
I am an Army…
Fair play. Never dated a whole army before, I’m going for it, wish me luck.23 April 2016 at 00:20 #51788
Ah, ha! I must be the favorite. Miss Tina/loveuu left me a massage. Apparently @blenkinsopthebrave only got a message.23 April 2016 at 00:35 #5178923 April 2016 at 01:13 #5179023 April 2016 at 08:31 #5180123 April 2016 at 13:24 #51804Conchobarre @conchobarre
I’m definitely not lonely, rich, nor do I work in a hospital. I actually just joined this forum quite recently and straight away got these two weird messages. I’m so glad I read your comments and it’s not a commonplace thing.
If they were messages from someone honest and interesting and discussing the Doctor I wouldn’t have minded!24 April 2016 at 05:03 #5184025 April 2016 at 19:34 #51895
This time the unwanted message (not even a typographical error with the promise of a massage this time) comes from aurora. I assume I wasn’t the only one.
You would think that a little bit of background research on this site would lead them to conclude that we are not their prime target audience.25 April 2016 at 21:10 #5189626 April 2016 at 00:26 #51907
Yup, I too have received another message. (Drat, the massage was so promising!)26 April 2016 at 01:36 #51909
Spammed again, from my phone at 2:30am from Barcelona. Oh how I dislike this. Let’s hope it stops now.26 April 2016 at 02:27 #51910
p.s. You’re in Barcelona and you’re complaining?26 April 2016 at 09:45 #51914
@craig I turned on silent mode on my phone between 0:00 and 6:00am partly because I got notifications from the site that someone (from different time zone) had mentioned me. No complaints. I love it. But I love to sleep too. It works.27 April 2016 at 04:10 #51931Anonymous @
“You would think that a little bit of background research on this site would lead them to conclude that we are not their prime target audience.”
Perhaps it is just the computer that is lonely. 😉 Maybe somebody should toss a few programs and some data at it and see if that will shut it up. Or, we could take inspiration for ST DS9 and build a doghouse.
But these names, they are so uninspiring and un-orignial. I could just see them being computer generated.28 April 2016 at 19:16 #5195028 April 2016 at 19:41 #51953
@mersey Thanks for the advice but I was actually just going to bed. Had free tickets to teh hotel’s club so it would have been a shame not to use them. 🙂
@stitchintime They are real people unfortunately. If they were computer bots there would be a way to stop them.
Everyone should heed the advice here: http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/fraud-az-romance-scams28 April 2016 at 19:45 #51955
Damn! I inadvertently posted my website comment to you, @craig, over on the Fox Inn.28 April 2016 at 19:49 #51957
I’ve asked this before and most were not in favour in the past, but as we’ve had a rash of Romance Scam messages in the last couple of weeks, what do people think about closing the Private Message option for a while.
Please let me know here.28 April 2016 at 20:21 #51958
It would certainly save you from having to constantly come in and spam the spammers, so yes, I am in favour.28 April 2016 at 20:53 #51959
