More delicious spam. The PM (Private Message) thing is a new trick - much harder to defend against it.

If you're curious, "black-SEO" is short for "black-hat" (i.e., unethical) Search Engine Optimization, which means putting links places where search engines (like Google) will find your site and believe it's popular, and so make it rise in the rankings until it's one of the top returns for things people look for.

So it's spam *selling* spam.

How on earth did this get through to my private message box. Do you know what this is and Grant did you send it?? Nah! Í don't think so.

Liz
