There has been no indication of any issues with the forum. Activity on the forum is sometimes sporadic, so lack of posts for a few days means nothing. We've had a few other new users and we setup some test accounts and none have seen any spam activity.
Which account did you send messages to that did not receive a response?
Thanks for getting back to me JonW, I had emailed firstname.lastname@example.org
but never got responses. Looking more closely you are right on how sporadic posts on the forum are, someone responded today so the forum is apparently working.
If there's nothing wrong with the forum then you may be right about the keylogger. My computer is protected by kaspersky and its my work PC so there isn't anything questionable downloaded to it so I'm not sure how that could happen, but you never know. I'll update and re-scan to be safe.
