Actually I’m way ahead of you — I deleted that user a couple of days ago when *I* got spam from them! Sorry for the inconvenience. Our spam user prevention plugins (Akismet and WangGuard especially) were working wonderfully for a time, but I’ve seen a major uptick in spam users in the last couple of months: time to try out some new ones and some new settings.May 18, 2016 at 12:29 PM #5482
Actually it was the “prisca” user I deleted due to spam, not “prisca22” — will see what I can do to block further spam from this source.May 18, 2016 at 12:32 PM #5483

Actually several of my campers have received this spam.March 9, 2018 at 11:28 AM #5699
Yes, I see! Worrisome. Let me find the offender and remove them.March 9, 2018 at 11:55 AM #5700
I’ve found the offending user and have removed them. Sorry about that: we do get quite a few spam users but they usually don’t message people like that. Let me know if you get more!
