Spam via PM: Use "Report private message" button within PM

Postby Moo » Wed Jul 16, 2008 9:09 am UTC

Please use this thread to report any incidences of spam PMs.
Except for those who have already been reported:
trideltatip
freakinfrijole
misterella
Victoria Andre
saweredu



So I got this PM today. There isn't exactly a "report" button on PMs (and yes, I realise, reporting is so you guys can delete stuff and I can delete it myself) but I've never experienced this on the fora before. I'm sure Miss Williams is a very nice lady but I'm just not looking for an "important relationship" right now. I thought I'd bring it to your attention that this is happening. If you knew that already, feel free to lock/delete.

User profile, no posts. Joined yesterday. Definitely spambot.

[Unfortunately, I can't banninate. But someone who can will see this eventually. Hopefully that saves them a little searching.]

I have received the same message from the same user... TWICE! Reported it via PM to one of the orange-level mod/admin staff.

I think a simple Report PM function would be a great asset, but possibly not attainable on this board setup.

The spambot has been banned now; if anyone else has received such a PM, just delete it, no need to report. Thanks to those who let us know about it! Report PM is interesting, I have no idea about implementation but I'll pass it on to Davean.

Why do you guys get all the porn spam, and I don't get any... I'm feeling left out...

What, am I not good enough for your unsolicited pornography? :(

... Do you... want me to forward it to you? It's not worth the time or effort, trust me. (though since trideltatip is gone, there might not be any more... not likely)

No, it's not the same if you have to ask for it...

It's like if you called the gossip magazines to tell them about your life... if you were worth writing about, they'd be coming to you, not the other way around.

Misterella was deleted.

In the future, if everyone could post here rather than PMing me, that would be swell.

And no need for confirming "me too" posts. If it's reported, just wait for it to be dealt with.

Thanks for the quick action on that! Checked the message from misterella, went to report it, and it was gone! Go, Mods!

SUGGESTION:


Please Edit the "first" post and add instructions:
Or, better yet, add a "sticky" for reporting spammy PM's.

[cite]INSTRUCTIONS:
- if you got a suspicious, spammy, porn, or other bad PM, report it here (ONCE)
- Please don't repeat any reports, and please don't "me too". Hint: CTRL-F to search for the username...

...Yes, we are working on better functionality, but this is what we got for now.
[/cite]

Thanks for running such a terrific forum!

Well then, I won't say I was spammed by one Mistrella!

Instead, I'll say kudos for blocking the ID and deleting the message before I was even able to investigate.
