Hello Kelef... I'm almost hesitant to respond. I haven't had anything like that in my inbox. You are talking about on your computer, not only in your SW Forum inbox? Spammers have posted many times on the forum today, clogging it up, but thankfully someone has cleared that up. I get very few SW emails in my personal inbox do to the way I have my forum preferences set up.
Good luck Man!
Someone spammed the forums a bunch. I cleaned up a few of them, or at least attempted to by reporting as spam, other people probably did similar things.
It looks like it's something that's been happening on a bunch of forums, at least going by the same text showing up. Might not be the same people or directly related, but it's definitely someone doing weirdness to the forums for some reason.
hei'ya Thomas @Thomas_Morgan-Witts,
thnx for your attention and reply-
as indicated in my previous reply to @Dennis_Bacon
it appears to be cleared up at this time of posting
and thnx for your "reporting as spam"- now there's a thing
after over 10 years? around this forum
and a (hopefully) contributing (posting any how's) for 4ish? years
(my memory is that bad, I can give myself a surprise party)
I've never/don't know how to report as "spam/or downright annoyingly wrong" posts
maybe we should follow other types of forums with perhaps a "un-awesome" button
so it's thnx to it's you and other responders the spammers are gone
thnx for your reply Thomas
have a good'n kelef
PS same as same as "@ Mention" link not working - go figure
Kelef Man works for me.
Those were spammer, so best is to report them as spam as soon as you see them. Use the "Report Abuse" button on right side of post under actions.
And delete all the emails from your inbox
hei'ya @Dennis_Bacon ,
thanx for your reply
yes-ish on my computor- that is in my email account
I very rarely need to go to the SW Forum inbox
as you can see from the scrnshts
they appear to originate only from "Modeling and Assemblies" forum-
and in fairly rapid succession - that gave my memory a little jolt
maybe about a year ago (before the new look forums) I think this happened before
but by the time I was aware or looked into it DG @Deepak_Gupta had posted,
and it appeared to be resolved- by the good guys moderators and super-users
well at the time of this posting
it appears to have cleared up- whoopi
thnx again for your response Dennis
have a good'n dude kelef
PS "@ Mention" link not working - go figure
Hacked or smurfed -
Because you're a special guy
