Default PM Spamming/Abuse


Thank you to the members who reported a recent instance of PM spamming to us.

If you received a PM from a fellow member saying he'd been banned by censoring forces of evil, rest assured that the staff has handled it. While he wasn't banned before (obviously, since he was logged on and sending messages), he is now. Spamming people though PMs is not appropriate, and this member had been informed of that already.

Most people use the Private Message system here as they use the rest of the forums: for fun, private conversations, and to keep in touch with forum friends. That's what it's for! But every once in a while, someone sends insults or unsolicited ads. If you get an abusive, spamming, or advertising PM, please report it by forwarding it to an Admin. The staff will handle it as outlined in the behavior policy in the FAQ.

You may now return to your regularly scheduled programming. :smile:

Why did he say you were censoring him?

The staff is as baffled by his "evil censors" comment as anyone. Asking people to abide by the rules of the forum is not censorship.

The poor fellow mixed up censorship and oppression. We regularly abuse our members; we do not censor them. We have scruples.

Bad move. *I'd recommend exchanging them for American dollars or Euros immediately.

And if I do say so myself most of us enjoy the abuse from our admins.

That's too bad--I know LegendFire. Nice place.

I think our little crisis is over for now, though!

Don't you mean 'recovering from memories of forum abuse?' You did take some hard hits, mano.

That does it, you're kicked out of the jackal pack. *You can apply to be a jackal lackey if you can come up with the proper ID.

I'm with Groucho: I wouldn't be a member of any group that would have me.
