    SUCCESS is not final, FAILURE is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts

      Heya Aidan,

      Unfortunately there is a lot of it right now. It died down very recently, but it initially spiked when we opened The Mix up to be accessible to other countries. We made a PSA about it here - I'd recommend having a read through. It should answer any questions you have.

      Reporting it is a huge help, so thank you to both of you!

      We're James, Aife & Mike: the staff team here at The Mix.
      If you have any questions about this place, feel free to
      ask over in the
      Help Desk or send us a private message.

          I think it's spam if it's foreign and has a link, but you've made me think, I dunno anymore...

            Derp, I forgot to link the PSA thread the first time -

            We'll check any reported posts to make sure they are spam before we delete them. We can check IP addresses and registration details - both of which are usually dead giveaways. In any case, it really helps us that you guys bring them to our attention in the first instance.
            ďBut I donít want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
            "Oh, you canít help that," said the Cat: "weíre all mad here. Iím mad. Youíre mad."
            "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.
            "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldnít have come here.Ē
