Yeah, I got a couple as well.. I suppose it's bittersweet that STO is doing well enough for it to attract this kind of attention.

I would be happy with options to automatically block mail coming from people not on my friends list, account, or fleet(s). Because honestly, those are the only places I want to get mail from.


Edit: Also, the way most of these sites work is by phishing account information from legitimate users, cleaning those accounts of their worth and then using those established account to spam more people into visiting their malware infested sites to repeat the process - much like a virus. There is nothing legal about it and the only throw-away accounts are the gibberish ones. If you get a mail from someone with even a slightly coherent name, that is a compromised account.
