Thanks RB!!! Yup, I got it (the pm) too. If you want to ban spammers, have at it, fine as far as I'm concerned.

Perhaps restrict PM access only to those who already have 5 meaningful posts by placing moderator approval on those first 5 posts. A lot of sites do this as a way to deter spammers and it works because posts don't appear until the new user shows they actually are involved with the forum content.

G'day all.

I also found this early yestdy morning, couldn't find any way of reporting a PM, so finished up forwarding it to "admin", so someone there could sort it.

Is that the best way to do things, or would it be better to do the same as Nipper & start a thread in here?

Thanks

Gunner

Probably best to just add it to this thread if it happens again. One of us will deal with the creep as soon as possible.

I've made a slight change which I hope will prevent messages being sent while awaiting approval. Let us know if more are received.

I didn't get one (PM) I must be the odd one out

That sounds like a great idea PigSti.

Feel free to do either or both Gunner41.
The more mods & admins that know about these scumbags the better & the faster something can be done about it.

Great work Kevin
Hopefully that will work & stop them

Regards
Mr Turbo

No need to un-ban this one! I've got the same, but since he's been banned I've not had to deal with the PM :D

Cheers

Bennie
