pm spammer / no way to tag/report from a pm

https://community.plus.net/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/46370 sending pm's to get photo's

issue this raises, there is no way to report the user to the mod team to deal with it other than pming one, who might or might not be on to deal

 

edit: meh there is but only from the pm its self not the user profile

already reported from the pm

the odd thing is that they don't appear to have made any posts

What has happened to the restriction about having to post first and register an email before being able to PM?

The member was banned as soon as the first report came in.

Good job @Mav I saw this after posting my thread in chit chat. Fishing for email addresses by the looks of it.

I owe @Mav a beer I think.

With the ranks currently out of action, my protective layer of posting publicy first before having the ability to send PMs has gone out the window. Once the ranks have been fixed by Lithium (and this is currently at Director level looking into this on Lithiums side as a matter of urgency) we will be able to resume the PM spam protection.

Cheers.

 

Honestly, no big deal. Just glad I was able to do something before too many others got spammed.
