I've never received a spam-PM! I've had a flame or two, but never spam . From what I can see the Mods get to 95% of the spam that crops up during waking hours*. I used to report every one I saw but then figured I was probably creating work for the Mods by sending them loadsa PMs. These days due to my current location I get to see what is going on overnight, so any spam there and I PM it to a Mod (usually SMS as he is up earliest!).zzm9980 wrote:Hi,
How does one officially report spam or problem posts? also, what about PMs?
I ask because I received spam PM from "Sophiachan". I just assumed other people would get it too, and s/he would be banned. But nope, still posting today. I've now manually forwarded the PM to SMS, but not sure if that is the best method to deal with this?
Also, privacy flaw in the PM system. A malicious user can determine if a victim has read the PMs sent to them. Unread PMs sit in the Outbox, read PMs sit in the Sentbox. Best practice is that a sender should not be able to determine if a recipient has read the message unless the recipient chooses to reply. (Sorry, slow at work today, so it's carrying over to this forum )
