Spammers?

That guy Michey83? He has banned on his profile description.
I presume he has sent everybody his survey.
Should I ignore it? Would it do any harm, to answer the questions? He is probably just a student?

Why waste your time with that?? I rarely get involved with anything unsolicited.

Thanks Vera Blue

I was not going to answer the questions, because apparently a lot of people objected to the survey.

But I looked over the questions. They looked like the harmless types sociology and other students ask. So, I answered them. They did not even ask for my email address or anything like that, so I dont think they will be sending junk mail.

I'm with Vera. I don't open emails from addresses I don't recognize. I trash them immediately. If a message is really important, folks know how to contact me.

Yes Mickey83 was banned earlier today, he tried the same thing, with the same survey using a different handle a few days ago. He was warned against his action by the admin, but he decided to persist, thus the expulsion. We are hoping this will be the end of it, however if any of you get another offending PM, please report to us immediately, as he likes to sneak about... thanks!
