    FYI Anyone get a PM like this?

    Hi,
    I'm new here, how's it going?

    "Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity" - Albert Einstein

    IS this spam or what? There was also a link in the message. What's really weird is that got a similar PM message to the tune of high I'm new and asking me to respond on a civil war board I'm also a member of. I obviously did not click on the link and deleted it on both boards.

    I've sent USNAp & 13mom a private message concerning this matter. Thank you for making the issue known. You as well mom3boys.

    If members would be so kind as to report any further suspicious material, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Have never gotten a PM like that so not sure how many people did. In general, you should NEVER open attachments or click on links in suspicious emails from people you do not know.

    Typically, bogus email messages are one way that PC viruses are distributed.

    The "member" who sent the pm's has been banned. Again, please report any pm's you might find odd. Be sure to include the user name and forward the message to a Moderator.

    Thanks all. Sorry for any inconvenience or worry this may have caused.
