This came in tonight ... the top looks like regular ranch private messages. Actually I got five of them, almost but not quite identical. One did not have the "Private Message Notification" part.

Subject: Dearest one

lizzycool just sent you (Stan James) a Private Message at JavaRanch Big Moose Saloon.

Here is the message sent by lizzycool:

I regret to inform you the Lizzy is no longer a member of this form and that you will not be able to collect your money.

On a serious note, we squash these almost immediately, just delete them and please accept our appologies for the actions of the problem members of society
