Received inbox spam - can't post this in "report a..." for

Posted 23 October 2011 - 10:13 PM

I haven't got access to post in the Report a Post/Topic forum, which is probably the right place to post this.

I've received spam rubbish in my inbox, looks like it's from some sort of Russian hoochie mama, judging by the promise of pictures if I email her him. If any Mods/Admin are interested, I'll forward on the username and message. Who knows, you might get lucky.

I locked down the Report a Topic forum because we are encouraging people to use the Report button instead. If you allow other members to email you, then you are leaving yourself open to spam. If this was a Personal Message, please use the Report button appropriately.

Erm, why would you report a post that you are getting spam in your inbox? They are not related. I also don't see how Dream In code would be responsible for preventing you from receiving spam. Can you explain further?

Just use the Report button at the bottom left of any post you want to report, this includes PMs.

Also, it's quite likely that we've already banned this person.

Ok, please use the report button on the post/message you want to report, not just any report button.

Yeah I tried doing it on the actual message, but I got this error:
