thats why I have filters for spam on my emails, I don't want it, need it or have a reason to keep it!
I quite agree. You're fortunate you haven't received one of these, probably because there are so many members in this forum. However, if the person isn't moderated or banned you may still get one!
To admin folks: here's a suggestion ... make it as easy to report undesirable PMs as it is to report undesirable forum posts so that something like this can be stopped a lot
I really think that PMs should be personal
- anything else belongs out in the public forum. If it is not deemed worthy of being in the public forum it certainly should not be broadcast by PM. There is nothing personal about a survey, and there was no introductory personal message indicating they were "asking permission" to post a survey anywhere on the forum. Big red flags all over the place.
Can individual members have their ability to send PMs disabled? That would be another option to stop this sort of abuse without going so far as to ban the member outright. (If there were any doubt that the member was simply taking advantage of the forum, which in this case, IMO, there isn't.)
