Default Getting Spam in your PM box?

Just report it to us, the moderating team (or if you want, you can call us the SpamBusters.)

Types of spam to be careful of include:

unsolicited offers for products and/or services

messages requesting money for services/job offerings/those Nigerian-type scams where you are promised money in exchange for giving up account information.

Same as if you see a post that's bothersome and you use that report button, there's also a report button at the top of the PM edit window you can use.

Default Spamarama

I just wanted to let everyone know that we do get spam here, some of it attempted by actual humans rather than bots.

You normally don't see it because we have the means to ensure it won't be seen by the members.

However we don't go snooping into people PMs and, thus, if a spammer tries to contact you that way we have to rely on you reporting it to us. We take measures to prevent it but on occasion a spammer has slipped through the net.

Every PM has the same report button as you find on every post here. You can use it to report personal attacks or other types of harassment via PM as well as spam.

Just a public service annoucement from your mod team.
