  • Annoying PM

    Did anyone else receive a PM from a new member who hasn't actually posted in the forum? I didn't open it as I was a bit wary of what the PM might have contained.

    What should I do if someone sends me a suspicious PM, do I just delete and ignore or is there a reporting function for spammers?

    Thank you,

    Belinda

    I did and i forwarded it to admin and a moderator. Nothing appears to have been done, but hopefully something in the background is happening.

          Hi
          I had one pointing me in the direction of something for sale on ebay that I might like.
          Were yours like that too?

            I can't remember now, but it was advertising something, I just thought the title seemed dodgy, I looked at the member's profile and saw that they have 0 posts and immediately thought uh-oh, this person is a troll. I think the name started with the letters "av"?

            ETA: just checked the profile again, the person has been banned

              I had one two full of nonsense and the sender had a 0 postings rating so I just ignored it.

                No probs, the littlys come first, and i know there are other things you can do that the 'mere mortals' cant see!

                It was a minor irritation, nothing huge! Thanks for sorting it!

                      I just had one this morning. It had a link to a porn site, so I just deleted the message. I wasn't sure how to forward it to a moderator.

                      However, under the person's name it said "Banned" so I think maybe the Moderators had already dealt with them.

                          You used to.................but I was ousted by two who haven't been back since.

                          The anonymous comment which exhorts me to 'get a grip' is from Keepthefaith89................who has posted 3 times, and obviously knows me so well. Can you get 'virtual chavs'?
