    Yeah Jerry I have received one of those myself from a Cynthia4ever or something to that effect,
    I was wondering how she fell in love with me since my pic isn't posted here at Motortopia. lmao image

    But I didn't pay any attention to it and just deleted it as I would any Spam or prank.
    Hopefully one of the Admins or Mods here can trace where they are coming from and block there I.P.
    I wish they would delete these empty accounts that have no picture or Car in there garage either,Maybe give them 30 days or account will be terminated?

    It is to bad we have one more obstical to deal with to upset the Motortopia community,It's bad enough with unfairly Car/Pic/Garage Voting and Challenges and rudeness in comments.
    It really turned me off of coming here or even other car hosted sites.

    Just another thing we have to deal with I guess.It's just a shame people have nothing better to do with there life than to give grief for others!

    Anyway,Have a Good day!
    Awesome Prowler! Congratulations again!

    Hi Jim and Kim

    It is a shame this crap goes on and there are people that get taken by it. No matter whether it is a love letter needing funds, money in a lost account, girl that loves us, it is all the same.

    The empty account thing is an ongoing problem that I truly wish MT could deal with. No doubt most are created for voting on challenges and it really undermines the site in my opinion. Some are created for voting on garages etc., and I realize this. I wish we could go a step farther and list my user name when I vote on anything. I think that would solve many problems.

    Take care,
    Jerry

    The maldaline account was deleted. We are starting to see spammers, so we'll be focusing on some efforts to deal with that very soon. For the time being, just alert us with the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

    Thank you for dealing with the account. I guess Motortopia is having to deal with growing pains. That is good, but, there is obviously a down side to it. To be honest I posted here in hopes that others would see it and not be taken in by the post. I know most are savvy to what the post really was, but there are always new people that do not know how to avoid these posts. Like you, I want every member of Motortopia to have a pleasant and safe experience with everything they do on Motortopia.

    Thanks again,
    Jerry
