Yes, that was spam.

It appears that this morning a very dedicated spammer created a Siafoo account and manually sent spam messages to about 90 users. Their account has been disabled and we are looking into ways to prevent abuse of the message system. We apologize for any annoyance this may have caused.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for preventing further incidences of this nature, drop us a line or post a comment below.

Maybe we could have some sort of rate limiting feature, so you can only send so many messages per hour. Or is there some sort of public IP blacklist? Or we can start banning IP ranges (or emails?) if there's any commonality in the IPs or emails from these spam accounts.

There's always SMS verification, too, but that can be a pain. And might not fix anything.
