Hi everyone. I'm getting emails from the Dingwall server almost daily about deactivated or newly created accounts. So far, starting on December 3rd last year, I've gotten 24 messages about this. The first one was from Mark at Grandora dot net. I did a google search and found that Grandora.net is owned by a company called Media Temple (according to the internet - who knows, really). http://toolshack.com/grandora.net I don't want to go to Grandora.net out of fear that it's a malicious site. Sheldon, can you confirm these emails have been coming from your server? With the exception of the first one, they all came from Sheldon at dingwallguitars dot com. I know there's a way to make emails appear to be from any account though so I'd like your confirmation. Anyone else having this issue? Here is a list of usernames I've been emailed about, in order, from most current (today at 2:24 am): mirant johnnybass01 deeptone sunny66 RJ Kershaw GAS Gaz fondufafa steve_themarked willjb rikerkeith bassdone Bonedaddy_Giant Maryam23 Rehman87 basie88 Flex J.K. rsint Akflyer tonyds Bruce Wayne alreymark Stupid email spammers. . .

C'mon guys. I'm getting lots of views. Nobody else is having this problem? Am I just being paranoid? Is there a new server setting for communal approval of any new members? I just don't know what's going on. As an update, I received another email today. The account name is "ckevinwelch" who responded on [url=https://dingwallguitars.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2804:1tkza9l1]this thread[/url:1tkza9l1]. Maybe this is just a server error and I'm getting all new member requests? Kind-of frustrating. I also don't like the thought that someone might be trying to create tons of new accounts for spamming purposes, but since this newest member is participating, I`m doubting this is the case anymore. Someone call me crazy!

For what it's worth, I didn't receive anything.

Nor me. Sounds like you've been made an honorary admin.

The strange thing is, we all belong to one and the same administrative group - Registered Member, and none other. I wonder both why and how you have been singled out by the spammers.

Thanks for the replies everyone. It's looking like a server issue right now. I spoke tp Sheldon about it on the phone today and he's on the case. I'll let you know when it's resolved.

This is resolved from what can be seen. It was indeed a software issue, not a selfish-forum-spammer issue. Sheldon and his website partners were very helpful and quick to fix this. I perhaps got a little more bent out of shape than I needed to, and I apologize for that. Specifically I'd like to give a shout out to new member ckevinwelch whom I sent a rather abrasive PM to (who took it in stride). Apologies friend, I shouldn't have been rude. Welcome to the forum. :)

Glad to hear things are getting straightened out for you.
