EDITED TO ADD: A big "Thank You" to Charlie for leaving this off-topic fan post up. Again, my apologies to anyone affected.
To any members of BD that I have corresponded with via gmail, either recently or in the past:
One of my gmail accounts got hacked today (I have more than one), and sent out a HUGE batch of spam from some hosebag at "zol-sell [dot] net."
The email's subject line is "a welcome website"
Please be advised that this is NOT FROM ME, and opening it may or may not lead to you being hacked just the same - I do not know whether it is a phishing email or just spam. I advise you to trash it immediately, and then immediately empty your trash folder.
My sincere apologies to anyone who may have been inconvenienced by this. I have taken steps within my gmail account to prevent further occurrences. Please also note that the email address in my profile page was not the attacked/hacked one.
