Receiving Spam on Imeem

I’m just so surprised that I was able to receive spam messages on Imeem. My email inbox was flooded with notifications from Imeem. I think it just started 2 days ago, I just thought someone REALLY sent me a personal message. From first 5 few messages, it eventually came flooding in with 20 more… and yesterday I noticed that I received notifications for every few minutes. And just now as I opened my email, I received 50+ new notifications. A bit alarmed, I opened my Imeem account and checked my received messages. A total of 100+ new messages. I would like to share some screenshots but I haven’t installed a photo editor yet.

Too bad. I just seen some good “aesthetic” changes with Imeem. But I guess some of the functions sucks. What I did with the 100+ spam messages? Here is some steps:

  1. I deleted it all manually from the message inbox on Imeem Messages Area. The messages are viewed 10 each on the panel, so there are 10 page nav below. I mean, are there no options for View All and Select All and Delete All?
  2. Everything that I marked as SPAM went on the Spam Folder. I deleted it manually again.
  3. Everything that I deleted on the Spam Folder went on the Trash Folder. I deleted it manually again. Jeez, isn’t there any EMPTY TRASH option?
  4. Yeah, for 30+ clicks and page refresh (I might be lucky if it was made by AJAX, but hell NO), at last it all vanished. Go mouse power.

Oh well. What I just did is I modified my privacy settings. I disabled from “everyone to send me a message and changed it to “friends“. And to make sure, I unchecked all the notifications to be sent on my email. I haven’t opened any of those spam messages, and hopefully I wouldn’t be a part of this spam.
