Our apologies.

This individual has been banned from the BC.

You are not the only member to have received such a PM.

Your profile here is not compromised in receiving a PM as such.
Just don't reply or respond to any link presented.

Regards,
Koan

Since PMs are not monitored in any way, the BC staff has no way of knowing if our Members are being spammed unless either a Staff Member receives it, or Members report it. Once known, PM spamming is dealt with immediately.
Thanks for letting us know so we could take action, Bata.
