How To Stop The PM Spamming Of Members

Post by patiogardener on November 28th 2010, 1:11 am

Have just received a second foul anti-Forumotion spam. The first was from a member who was banned. This second one is probably from the same person who has rejoined Forum of the Forums. Their user name is typlopoop.

When I received the first one I sent off a reply telling them to stop spamming me, etc. This second I just deleted it. How can we stop this kind of spamming???

You need to send one of the staff members a PM with this. Please don't create these topics in public.

Sorry, I wasn't aware it was not permitted to mention such topics in the public forum. Thought this was where we came for support. I just want to know how the stop such PMs. After all this idiot obtained my name from here.

I don't see why anyone would hate Forumotion :/

Maybe the staff should implement some kind of bot that detects messages like these.

You can't really block spam messages and have your pm's open. The only way to stop that is to block your pms for everyone

I agree with you, 100%. The spam had one word, in particular, that could alert such a bot.

Agent 24, I am aware that trying to stop spam PMs would stop all of them. Thought there may be a some other way of limiting such garbage.
