In case you're wondering why you got a private message notification (November 4th, 2007) but no message, a spammer tried to send private messages to everyone on this forum... I got to delete his account and all the private messages that he sent were deleted too.

Information about the spammer (he also runs some scam websites):
Name: Ali Raza
Email: extreme90@gmail.com
Location: Pakistan
IP: 117.102.34.130
More info at http://www.onlineverif.com/?go=pages/posts/posts&id=16321

Sorry for the inconvenience,
C.

In the past few days there have been several spam accounts sending messages to everyone. If you got private message notifications from this forum but but no message, it was a spam message that got deleted when I removed the spam accounts.

If you're wondering why the spam accounts with all the captcha verifications, the answer is http://afoi.ru -- you can open that page but DO NOT ENTER THE CODE shown there. Each time a user falls for that and enters the valid code, a new spam account is registered somewhere in the world on a forum or social-networking website. And that spam account sends messages to other users with links back to the captcha breaking website...
