Anyone else get a PM from Mentalist12 (who has no actual Forum posts)?

Our site has not been hacked, but the guy has just been sending out lots of PMs to members.

Someone send me his display name so I can ban him.

Thanks.

Gentlemen,

Might this be the same as an email I received yesterday from an individual looking to sell/trade certain Jerome Finley titles?

I've banned the guy permanently. Spamming members gets you banned. End of story.
