Maybe we can get TradeHill to disable any account or at least reverse any discount these spammers get and in fact set their trade rate to the highest level vs. any discounted level if Tradehill sees a list of such referral ID's?

So far I've seen (granted my spam filters are pretty tight)

TH-R15977
TH-R15683

Of course this is just the beginning of the SPAM but I for one would love to see any Bitcoin user who is trying to profit from the data leak have their accounts shut down at any and all providers.
The Bitcoin software, network, and concept is called "Bitcoin" with a capitalized "B". Bitcoin currency units are called "bitcoins" with a lowercase "b" -- this is often abbreviated BTC.

Go ahead and add to this list. We will verify it and remove their referrals.
Obviously punishing them with higher rates would just cause them to create a new account.

We appreciate the efforts to put a stop to this.
We hate spammers as well and won't tolerate it.


Edit: can we make this the official thread? I've seen at least 5 already. No reason to flood the forum with threads about spam. Thanks.

Let me check my inbox.... I confirm TH-R15683 spammed me also (8 spam mails from this person)

Dear Sir or Madam,
 
 
A few hours ago the Bitcoin trading website Mt Gox has been hacked. Malicious individuals have been able to obtain a database containing usernames, email address and encrypted passwords. This information has been posted publicly on the internet.
 
As a Bitcoin supporter I'm now sending a message to every email address contained in the hacked database. This is to warn you that your username, email address and password have been leaked. I therefore strongly advice you to change your passwords. If you have used the same password on different websites it's highly recommended to change your password on all of your accounts!
 
For a more secure alternative to Mt Gox, the community appears to be moving to TradeHill. So this is no reason to lose faith in Bitcoin itself. It must be seen as a warning that not every website can be trusted with your data however! Their link is http://www.tradehill.com/?r=TH-R15683 (Note: You can remove the Referral Code when registering if you want!) This is certainly not the only website where you can exchange Bitcoins, also check out http://www.thebitcoinlist.com/dp_bitcoin/bitcoin-exchange/
 
 
Sincerely,
 
A Bitcoin supporter
