From time to time romance fills the air around FUDforum, causing certain individuals to uncontrollably cast aside their inhibitions and seek LOVE among the member list, sending out E-Mails such as the one quoted below.

Don't answer them; it's just a "Phishing" attempt to gain your E-mail address! In the meantime I trust that naudefj or someone else will find and delete this yahoo address's ability to send out any more such love letters.

Mr. Witcher, if you still have that message, can please forward it to me. I want to look at the message headers so I can plan a nice surprise for them in the next release.

For the rest, if you get a mail like this, please report it immediately to the forum's admin. It is important to get these users banned ASAP.

Admins may also want to disable the mail sending feature on their forums:
Global Settings in ACP
Allow E-mail:
Enable/disable the forum's built-in email clientin the Global Setttings Manager).

My attempt to forward failed, but I imaged it and placed it in your PM folder at the guild!
