    Default Reporting Spam PMs

    What's the process for reporting SPAM PMs?

    We have not had a problem that we are aware of.

    We don't monitor PMs.

    Report it here.

    What is the user name. If they haven't been banned yet, they will be.

    Has anyone else received a SPAM PM?

    I just completely disabled PM for unregistered users and users not logged in.

    The account was Jeannette

    SPAM probably was not quite the right way to describe it as it wasn't particularly trying to sell anything but I am very sus of an PM from a brand new user (not that I have been a member for very long) that also has a web link in it and is not referencing anything specific.

    Jeannette is a notorious forum spammer running rampant blabbing on about religous mumbo jumbo.

    As this spam-bot is currently on the forums, I suggest banning it and in the ACP under 'quick user links', select 'delete all pms sent by user'.
