    Spam private messages.

    I appreciate that the tagline to my Avatar makes me a prime target; but I am getting pretty sick of spam private messages. The senders usually only have a couple of posts; probably because the mods get to hear about them and close their accounts. Wouldn't it make sense to only allow people with a certain amount of posts to send private messages. No; on second thoughts why the hell should these lowlifes be allowed to spoil something that makes SP what it is; let's hunt them down and shoot them instead. Or better still make them read the drivel they send over and over.
    There are three kinds of men:
    The ones that learn by reading.
    The few who learn by observation.
    The rest of us have to pee on the electric fence.

    We're aware that PM spam is on the rise at the present, and we're trying to ban the cretins as quick as possible.

    If anyone else gets PM spam, please forward to any online Advisors/Leam Leaders.

    No, I couldn't find one either.

    I did put forward the idea that the report button in posts should be added to PM's so that it's easier for the member rather than having to find someone online to report it too, though I dont know what the current status on that idea is

    The report-PM button should be on its way some time soon. I've suggested the idea numerous times and the usual answer is 'it's in the pipeline'.

    Until the report button comes through the other end of that pipeline, I just forward mine to an advisor or leam leader.
