Sounds to me almost like a bot retrieving member names from here, adding a semicolon sign between them, adding a few words, and adding a link. Kind of a "proof of concept" that a bot is actually capable of doing this - and of sending private messages, too.

Or could this be a real person knowing you from another forum where you all are or were active, too ? If so, "Hello and bye" sounds to me like "I have seen you" or like "gotcha", perhaps even trying to create a feeling of being watched or followed. Or both.

Has anyone tried that youtube-like link ?
