    It seems pretty common even by people WITH posts. I get a few from time to time that are usually about "Hey! Participate in my contest!" or "Hey! I'm starting this new site just like SitePoint!"...

    I'll forward them from now on.

    I feel dejected, I've never received one of these spam PMs. I guess I don't participate in the right threads.
