Spammers

Hi,

If you're being spammed by PM, please do report the PM. Without reports we don't know that spamming through PM is happening!
If you see a PM from "Anonymous" it means the user has already been deleted, so no need to report those!

We've had an increase in spam attempts recently and I try my best to keep them at bay, which isn't always easy.

Yes thank you. I am at the newborn level so I may get spammed... IDK but maybe not because I am at a low level.

Mayrrygrili is now (IP/email) banned and reported to the hosting company (they used a server), unfortunately the PMs aren't deleted when I delete the user.

Thanks ZeeGee and Pertrubee! I had one from Marrygrili also, but just an e-mail that went into my spam folder. The PM wasn't here so I am fortunate enough not to know what it said.

It has just occurred to me that I don't know how to delete PMs.

It should be relatively simple.
There are two ways:
- Inbox view, tick the boxes on the right hand side of the message(s) you want to delete (in the Mark column), then scroll down, use the menu at the bottom to select "Delete Marked" and click/tap on Go.
- Open a message, press the X button at the top right of the message. (The ! is to report messages).

Thank you. It was hidden in the box that said Mark/Unmark Important. I found it! :D
