Spam E-mails

I've gotten several complaints while I was at work about people getting multiple e-mails titled "Your writing" or "Your fanfic" advertising a new fanfiction script or site.

I've already e-mailed the person asking them to stop, but I'd like to know right now how many members have actually gotten this spam. -_-;; If you've gotten it, please post a comment and let me know.

EDIT: Would those of you who have one of these spam e-mails dated today (July 01, 2008) please forward them to me at archive[at]lunaescence.com? I asked them to stop last night, if they're still sending them today, then I'm going to pursue further action.

EDIT 2: First order of business: All e-mail forms now check for common spam keywords as well as the recent spammer. Hopefully I have it set up so it doesn't catch normal e-mail. (Unlike my quickie, knee-jerk checks I wrote yesterday, which kept catching nearly everyone. ^^;; Sorry!)

Secondly, I shot a spam complaint off to the offender's ISP and the sites they're advertising. I also did a bit of research and apparently this person has been doing this sort of thing for at least a year.

 

Comments
I have gotten said spam, e-mail thing. ~.~ I ignored it though.
- Black Wolf Shinzu on 07/01/08 - 12:58AM
I received one as well, but it showed up in my junk file and I just trashed it...
- Hanami on 07/01/08 - 01:01AM
I got one too, but I just deleted it.
- Tenteki on 07/01/08 - 01:04AM
I've also received one.

I've gotten it about... two or three times? Its really annoying. D:
- Lime on 07/01/08 - 01:12AM
I got one, and checked it out. It was odd, but didn't strike me as spam. I guess I'm either gullible or not bothered as easily as I might should be.
- Kremlin_Dusk on 07/01/08 - 01:15AM
I've received one too.
- Teh Writer Squirrel on 07/01/08 - 01:22AM
I got it too. I read it, and I did get a little suspicious.
- Kisara Yoshida on 07/01/08 - 01:23AM
Me~ it appears I'm not unique or special in any way. Aww. :P In all seriousness, though, I just glanced at it and ignored it.
- crazydominodragongirl on 07/01/08 - 01:26AM
I got one~I was really suspicious about it though and deleted it.
- AnimeKittyGirl13 on 07/01/08 - 01:27AM
I also got the email advertising the two fanfiction sites. I checked that the sites were secure too, so it's nothing more than someone spamming people on this site. No trojan or virus or anything, just annoying.
- DomoLurv on 07/01/08 - 01:46AM
I received it twice.
- Dark Ceray on 07/01/08 - 02:09AM

I received one too. O_o I still have in my inbox in case the email needed to be saved. ^^:;;
- LatonaSelene on 07/01/08 - 03:25AM
I've gotten it. I looked at it and thought it was someone talking about my fics, but when I saw it was just that, I got disappointed. ^^;; So yeah, I got it. >.>
- Ale on 07/01/08 - 03:34AM

- bkl on 07/01/08 - 06:57PM
So, I'm not the only one who got this, huh? I was wondering why someone would email me that. I got it a few days ago and deleted it a few hours ago.
- Phantom_Daydream on 07/01/08 - 07:10PM
I got it. I asked for explanations. It was a little annoying, but at LEAST the spammer was polite...
- Kerrigan Sheehan on 07/01/08 - 07:36PM

I got one, too.
But I deleted it.
- Sick-O on 07/11/08 - 11:40AM
I've received this email about...six times? I believe that would be the number. I'm not aware of where it's coming from, but I do know that this person is trying to promote a certain website.

Thank you Sally. :)
- Seishi on 07/12/08 - 02:33PM
Hey,
i received one of them advertising like fanficfan and stuff. is that the one everyone got??
I didn't know it was a spam shite thing tho. Lucky i ignored it cuz it looked sad.

thanks for saying this otherwise :) its notifies us. cheers ^___^
- Mei-Xing on 07/13/08 - 01:39AM
Got one, read it, scowled and then deleted it.
- Fluorescent-X on 07/14/08 - 10:59PM
Whoa.. this is what I get for taking an enrichment course. o.o

I got on too. I didn't have time to really go over it farther than the part about the website.

As soon as I saw that, I just left it in my inbox for a couple of weeks until just recently when I had the pleasure of cleaning out over two hundred e-mails. -_- I don't appreciate spam. Especially when I can barely find time to think of fanfiction ideas anymore.
