I just got one from someone, the title was Rctech car videos so I opened it, but it was porn so I deleted it. Probably a virus.

So, it's possible innocent people could be losing their accounts when you go to ban them for this.
Unfortunately I think this is the case too.

Stupid people...

I got one too. Deleted it. I think someone is figuring out our passwords, and using accounts that arent thiers.

Maybe we should all change our passwords, to something complex and almost impossible to guess.

EDIT: BTW, I go by Bigshades, I remembered i made this account, and changed it.
