Spam from this Morning / Challenge Wrap-Up
We just wanted to send you all a quick note to let you know that it appears that all of our Challengers were sent a message from a spammer (gift20), which contained an invitation to contact them at their email address. Please ignore this message, it was just spam.
We just wanted to take a minute to let you know that the spammer has been blocked and we’ll be working on and discussing some further measures to stop spam in the future. This includes, for the time being, only being able to send private messages to people on your friends list.
In the meantime, its worth reviewing some good online practices, made available from Washington State’s Attorney General’s Office: http://www.atg.wa.gov/InternetSafety/Teens.aspx
If ever you are contacted by Pierce County Library Staff from the Teen Summer Challenge, they will have “grandmaster” in front of their name.
The Challenge has almost concluded, so keep working away on your badge claims. You have until midnight, this Sunday, September first to send in your claims. Claims will be finished and the final winner determined late next week.
