I haven’t been sent any of these spams yet, Joe Lyddon started a thread about a different lady of the night who is proposing LJ members here.
Thanks for the heads up Roger.

I got 3 of them, question is, do I block the sender and send it to the junk folder, or would that block all LJ messages.

Tyvek, where did you find her homepage?

That would block all LJ messages. The spammer has been flagged enough that I’m sure Cricket is on top of getting them stopped.
