    Yup. Looks like trouble.

        A pile of similar messages went around a couple of weeks ago.
        Delete first.
        Ask questions later. :-)

              I got one too. Need to weld up a new in box with better security.

                Been there...

                I work in computer security, so of course I had to see what old Serendipity was up to. (Usually that "handle" is associated with offers for a particular "V" drug). The link has been disabled for spamming.

                I drive a Mac with lots of interesting software installed, so I'm not in much danger of getting an infected machine. It's always fun to see what the bad guys are trying this week.

                You guys were right to avoid the link. You can waste a lot of valuable time trying to clean up an infected machine.

                  It's gettin pretty bad when their hitting a forum like this one. Thought their main target was the "online dating sites".

                    The red / black (upper right corner) exclamation mark is for reporting posts and email..I just got the same and reported it. Most spam (like that pic BTW) like this is generated by bots.. If I could only find a couple bots to work in the shop 24/7
