Minetest forums email classed as spam(NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED)

This is reading as though someone is hacking the forums and attaching something to make it sound like spam/a threat. I trust the person who is trying to say is a threat also it's saying that about a single notification from a specific person letting me know about a message that I had gotten on the forums. And it only happened once for that person and only recently. I'm asking no I'm pleading for the admins to get to the bottom of it. I had gotten a spam message a day or so ago telling a bunch of lies about people on here and one of them was about my dear friend Toby109tt. I don't need someone on here spreading lies and spamming me and I don't like people who hack and threaten this very community.

This is because someone has been abusing the forums and causing it to send lots of PM notifications. Some people have marked it as junk in google, and this warns others of that "perceived danger".

Unfortunately, googles system is very easily manipulateable, and there is little that can be done if people keep marking these notifications as spam/junk.

I had gotten a pm the other day and was spreading a bunch of lies among other things and many people have been getting them other than me.

The best thing you can do is to click "Ignore, I trust this message" to let google know that you think that forum.minetest.net is a trustworthy website. If enough people do this, Google may remove the warnings.
