    I got it also. I believe a ban is in place. At this rate TouchArcade will be full of this within a month. I thought that TA was better than this, and we avoided this type of thing. Appearently not.

    They just want your email address to spam you there.

    I'm special, she, he, or they composed the same letter to me twice. I'm now investing my life savings(two iTunes gift cards and $3.84 usd) into this lovely spammers scheme. When I get my payoff I'm gonna buy urban tycoon.


    Can't wait!

    Also got it :(
    Maybe you could make it so you have to sign up to touchArcade from an iDevice. Might get rid of most unwanted visitors..

    No, this wouldn't be useful because lots of users join TA before they get their iPod Touch/iPhone just to find out about some apps worthy of purchasing. This would make TA only available to those who already have the iTouch/iPhone... which isn't fair at all. :)

    I didn't get the message, but I do agree we need to get rid of the spam(mer).

    Anyway, if this was true why would she be on an iPhone games website?

    It's a shame this forum is getting so many new members it will be overrun by trolls and spammers in no time. I am not sure how many admins are on these forums, but I am willing to bet Arn is going to need a lot of help to keep these forums tidy.

    Why?! I would if asked, but I in no way aspire to become one. I would rather just be my little, unnotable, self.

    I don't want to be a mod. Then I can't be myself.
