Security Updates in Pronetos
Greetings all – just a quick note about some code changes to the site, and some new security measures. In our effort to connect the worlds scholars in as seamless a manner as possible, we put up as few barriers as possible to communicating with each other. Unforunately, this has led to some users abusing the site by phishing or spamming legitimate Pronetos members. Why they chose our site when they could have copied hundreds of faculty e-mail addresses from any number of university website, I don’t know. What I can tell you though is that we are making some changes to the way Pronetos works.
We want Pronetos to be a community where researchers can network and collaborate with other colleagues in their field, and a community that supports the creation of scholarly research. Thanks for helping us reach those goals. We hope we are helping you reach yours.
