Today someone created an account on Professor Pincushion and sent out some spam messages to some random users via the private messaging feature on our site. We've deleted this user's account and disabled the private messaging feature throughout the site. The message says they're from Florida and wants you to send them an email to their address. Obviously, do not do this, it's just spam. If you got an email, we apologize. This has nothing to do with your account or the security of the site. It was merely someone abusing the private message feature. And Santa will bring them coal for Christmas, but they're obviously bad! Thanks!
