I was notified there was a user named qbert_444 spamming private messages. I removed him and reported his details to the Askimet and StopForumSpam.com data base. As with any thing sent to you by someone you don't know, don't click on any links. Thanks go out to everyone who sent me a heads up on this!

If you can send the message to me I can take action against that IP address. Anyone else who gets a notice, just forward to me chris (at) fiat500usa.com. Thanks!

Cool. I aggressively go after the spammers so thanks. I also made some changes to make it more difficult to abuse the PM system. If anyone else ever gets a suspicious message, always let me know. This way I can jump on the issue ASAP. Thanks!

qbert? did you ever think it was the actual qbert character from the Atari games reaching out for help trying to escape the Atari world he has been trapped in for 35+ years??? The levels never end they just keep changing colors and the levels don't stop coming ok. So yeah, if I was qbert I would send like 50 spam messages asking to get me out of that hell I was trapped in.
