    Reporting PM Spam?

    I'm sure it has been asked before, but here goes again. What's the most effective way to report PM spam?

    The PM identifier is 272660, and the person has been spamming throughout the forums as well (exact same purpose, trying to sell a site). He brought up dozens of old threads just copying and pasting, then he sent me a PM (I guess maybe because I have a post in one of the threads he spammed in).

    Just wondering who I could PM, or what I should do, if I ever get more useless garbage/spam. Thanks.

    Yes, he spammed me as well, which brought about a swift banning.

    In the future, forward the PM to mmj and he'l take care of it.

    It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.

    Spamming an advisor?! Not smart at all.

    Well, maybe that person had a few smarts after all. Smart enough at least not to spam SP staff.

    This thread reminds me of a situation at work a few years ago, when a co-worker had propositioned a couple of the women in our office. At the time, I was going for a walk with him on break every day but he never propositioned me. I wasn't sure whether I should be relieved or offended by that.
