I got the pm too but did not click the link. I noticed the user had Banned under their name.

Oh darn. All I got was a message telling me that someone had tried to PM me, but my inbox was full


And I so enjoy a nice thing of every now and then.

Send a message via Yahoo to Chefellas
I got the message too. I realized she was banned after I tried to answer. I guess I have to keep my eyes a little more open!!!

When I received the message, I thought it had that odd sort of canned feeling, so I checked the sender's profile. When I saw that she had just signed up that day and had no posts, I forwarded the message to a couple site admins. Even though she did put in the line about having lurked here for a while, it didn't pass the sniff test.

Speaking of which, either did that oxtail stew (yeah, curiosity got the better of me).

Well, suzy, do you do taxes? If so I want to hire you, as "furrygrrl" fooled me completely. Thank goodness we have intuitive folks like you on board. It just shows how naive some of us are. Only after I took the time to reply to her "Halloweenish" frightfare did the ban sign appear.

I thought that it was funny that somebody would send me a pm saying that it seems like I know what I am talking about since I have all of ~15 posts :)
