The spammers have finally figured out how to spam us through PMs. Received a missive from some spammer today going by the name of sweetyluv. Just as I was enjoying the benefits of technology, ie Furtwangler's post about the pedagogy conference, some thoughtless idiot comes along and ruins it.

I thought it was just me she wrote to, as she felt an indescribable peaceful sensation while looking at my profile. Clearly, I'm not so special...

I got this spam too. I began to wish I hadn't jokingly said I'd ask for a photo (on a different thread). Now I'm relieved to see it's a general spam, not due to something I posted.
