I received notification earlier today that spam and other inappropriate material was being posted under one of our author's accounts. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but this was by no means done by the person who owns the account. It seems that a spammer got in under her password and has been abusing the review system.
To protect your account and the site, please read the following tips:
1.) Choose a password that is hard to guess, with both numbers and letters. Even better if it's not a dictionary word.
2.) Change your password often.
3.) Stay up to date on your virus and spyware scans. Sometimes when this happens, it's because a person has unknowingly downloaded spyware or key loggers onto their computer, allowing access to private information like passwords.
4.) Please report any spam or inappropriate activity directly to me. If it's happening under what looks like a legitimate account, do not contact the member with angry messages. It's very likely that they don't even know this is happening in the first place.
