I received on from: Eleanorrh32 4 hours ago. Looks like TF deleted it and suspended them. Glad they were on it so fast. Question though: How do you block someone? Thank you.

Wouldn’t worry about blocking, sounds like they’re just creating a mass of new accounts so the next message could be from anywhere

We try and catch these spammers soon as possible and ban their accounts and mark all the messages from them as spam.

You can help by reporting the user using the "Report Scammer" link on a message thread.

I received an email through Trailforks/Pinkbike from Lunabg744, but link to message didn't work. Presume similar problem?

Just received a message from Isabellavy430. When I open it it says "you cannot view this message"
Maybe same issue?

There have been some big spammer attacks this weekend. We are trying to block and ban them as fast as we can. Also adding some more checks and blocks to try and prevent this.... but @nojzilla is correct it's the internet. I just got 2 spam Instagram messages today and that is from a hundreds of billion dollar company with huge resources to combat it.

Hey I know most of us are having a good chuckle about Incognito Robin, but I’ve gotta wonder if there is a relationship between the acquisition of PB, and the increase in spam BS. Going with the old adage that “if [I am] getting the product for free, then [you are] the product”… I have a really low threshold for this kind of stupidity and I’m inclined to deactivate this decades-old account and infrequently check PB anonymously. Sort this out, quick, or brace for a mass exodus.

Been on PB since 2008 an I've not noticed any increase. Though, the spam does hit in a wave so. Maybe that's why it seems like there's an increase since the buyout?

There is no increase, this type of stuff and large spam attacks happen on Pinkbike all the time for a decade. They just keep getting more sophisticated.
