Cheers. I just reported this to the rest of the Mod crew. Could you please forward the PM to me or any other Mod so that the sender's username is visible. We'll take it from there. Thanks for bringing this up.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I just banned and deleted his PM's as well. PM Scam Spam will not be tolerated, so do forward these kind of instances to a moderator or Admin and report them that way. we'll deal with them immediately.

I am the head Administrator, lotek and Siu Blue Wind are also site admins, and it's something that any of the staff can handle, whether a Moderator or an Admin.

I just forwarded this to Juha let me know if that did not work. Not really sure I did it right.

Thanks for the great help.

He can no longer access either the PM network or the Email a Member system, happily. The only BF member he can email now is me.
