    See the science advisor's forum. All will be revealed in the thread by marcus.

    Actually, there may be a few non-science advisors affected by this too. If you are one of them, look in your PM inbox for an empty message dated from 1969 (it'll be buried with all the old messages you have saved if you have a lot of old messages saved). Delete that and it'll go away. Basically, someone was spamming people by PM, and the data base was cleaned out, but it seems to have left these residual phantom PMs in people's boxes rather than completely clearing them out.

    I'm sorry. Maybe you'll get spammed next time. :approve:

    Perhaps we can all spam Mayday on a weekly rota if it makes Mayday feel better?

    I got one of these too: I just scrolled down to the end of my PM box and found a PM with no name or information. I gathered it was some sort of spam anyway, so deleted it!
