Default PM Spam

I just received a private message, quoted below. This exact same message has been appearing in other fora, for example:
http://www.phone-forensics.com/foru...ad.php?p=169585

It looks like the spammers have figured out a way to sign up for an account and send spam via the forum tools.

Hi,
I'm new here, how's it going?

"Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity" - Albert Einstein

I got one too...what a waste of time! It was especially annoying since I also got an e-mail telling me I had a PM! And here I thought someone actually wanted to communicate with me.

Likewise. I actually responded. I feel like an idiot.
