    I just got a spam in my PM box, linking to a forum for veterans. It was sent to several other users too. I just deleted it after seeing the spammer had already been banned, other wise I would have posted it here.

    I don't know if this is a major issue. It's the first time it's happened to me. Maybe it doesn't happen enough to even do anything about.

    But if it is becoming a trend, maybe it could be dealt with like this. No PM capabilities until you've got 15 posts, like the n00b restriction on not being able to post links in the open forum. Is the software for this site able to do that?

    Just an idea. Thanks. :thup:

    I also think that the no posting PMs rule should be waved for PM reponses to reps where the rep comment is posted publically.

    I reported mine to the general mod box by clicking the little icon in the top right.

    Then I realized that the mods would not be able to see it because it is a PM...and they can't see PMs.

    BUT I WAS WRONG!!! THEY WERE ABLE TO SEE IT!!!

    It looks like an idea, smells like one, sounds like one. Hey, what do you know an idea! It looks foolproof, which makes me wonder if it can possibly work.

    If you report a PM to mods then yes they can see it

    Correct me if I'm wrong, or you simply got a different spam message. But the one I recieved from 'robare', who is currently online at the time of this post, said it was for "vets" of Wall Street. Not the military.
