I too had this e mail, shortly after the site became unresponsive and I could not log out.

Just a coincidence I think WT.

The format of that mail is what you will see if any member chooses the 'email this member' option against your profile - it allows you to receive an email from them without them seeing your address.

Marian is a spammer who has just been banned - she had also sent PMs to some people.

So there's no hacking, and the problem should be over, for now at least.

Yep, cheers for the thread. We caught them because of the PM, but otherwise this would have been a useful heads up.
