Abuse of personal message system

Postby Ben » Sat Jul 09, 2011 11:21 pm

Dear members

If anyone sends you unsolicited spam or sends you anything via the pm system that make you feel uncomfortable - please do not hesitate to contact somone from the admin/mod team immediately.
kind regards

Does this happen a lot? :o

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.

I'm not sure. But if our members don't know that content of personal messages come under the terms of service then they are unlikely to come forward and report abuses. Something happened on the weekend which reminded me of the need to inform our members that spam or offensive material being sent to via the personal message system is in breach of the terms of service and should be reported so that we can investigate and act to protect the welfare of our members and DW as an online community.
kind regards

Why doesn't anyone ever send me offensive PMs? Aren't I important enough to harass?

You're far too intimidating. I can tell from your avatar!

It is from the movie, THE ATTACK OF THE PEZ DISPENSERS.
