SPAM in PM

Who do we report SPAM msg in PM? Are we supposed to be able to get SPAM on this site?

Thanks, BD

Thanks for the heads-up. We are aware that there was an outbreak of PM spam from a new user. We have dealt with one such spamming user this morning.

You can report spam e-mails with the red triangle icon just like any other post or send a PM to a mod or admin about it. In fact, it was one user who reported it to us a few minutes ago that enabled us to look at it and take action. And with PMs, we have no way to know the spam exists unless it's reported to us.

Thanks. I'll try the triangle thing. I've never used it.

Remember a month after you joined up, this board went through the notorious gay Asian porn spam PM incident?

Gosh, I can't wait to see what Google's SEO does with that phrase!
