    Not really hacked. New Spam.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    Just delete it, like I'm doing with the message I got from the same person. One of the administrators will toast the twerp.

    I wish I could, but I have not been given the authority. I'm working on something that should take care of this kind of thing.

    I got the same PM. Also I've gotten spam/trojan/worm (attempts) from some folks Yahoo accounts. Sheeplady would be one that I received an email from that contained a worm. I don't open any emails that are not "keyed" so I've not been victimized yet but beware of getting emails from friends that have had their Yahoo accounts exposed.

    No wonder I couldn't find the user!

    Just like cachers get GPSrs for Christmas, spammers get email and password lists. They're just playing the game the way they like to play!
