Default Strange private message

I got a private message by someone with 0 posts saying "Hi, I'm new here", then a quote from some dude about knowledge or something and a link to some site I had never heared of. I'm thinking it may be a keylogger. Also, do private messages in this forum usually open automatically?

They don't open automatically. There's an option (yes by default) that makes a window pop when you get a new message, and you can open the message board from that window, but never the message itself automatically.

It was probably a bot. Post the user name so they can ban it.

I don't think it was a bot, the name was kind of thought, and if it was more would have gotten it. Probably being done manually.

PM it or forward the PM to one of our mods like Yuber, Cantus or Timolas.

Ouch...also I banned him so hopefully you won't have to deal with him again. For any PM's like this (bot like), there's a thread on the Gen forums called "The Bot Thread" where you can post possible names of automatons which the mods need to investigate.

Weird, "Serendipity" is actually the name of a movie. Bots don't usually have "normal" names.

It could not be a bot after all; which would be way more weird, then. Whatever, have you removed the user? It doesn't appear in the members' list. I wanted to check the usual "Profession: USA" field xDDD.

There was a glitch in the system where SOL's system was suspended. Not your account. I couldn't access SOL either.
