Thumbs down SPAM Emails - Board info hacked?

Have not visited this site in ages, but I got two emails today to the totally unique email address I gave only to this site. Let's just say I got an invitation I'm not likely to use (below). Anyone else get a similar email?

I didn't get that one but I've been getting a lot of spam to my email address associated with this forum lately. Coincidence?

Got one too. Can't talk about going fast but our information can be gotten. Doesn't seem like a fair trade. Ed

There is no evidence of a hacker infiltrating the forum's systems. Normally a real hack results in actual damage to the site.

We have traced the source addresses for the spam emails, and they do not match any board accesses, or members.

However, as a precaution we have turned OFF the ability to email members/friends from within the forum.

I did also delete the spammer who was sending the buddist emails.

Thanks RK!
The board seems to be loading a little slowly today on my end. Unrelated?
