Todd,

Just thought of something that might help us all. Is it possible to program a SPAM button in our PM viewer so if we get SPAM from someone there is a automated set point where if enough SPAM button feedbacks would trigger a block of PM's by that person and deletion of other sent SPAM, or for newbies, the complete deletion of membership and sent SPAM.

    That is an excellent idea.  I also need to create on for the blogs, now that you mention it.

    By the way, it turns out that guy sent a few dozen PMs, but you are the ONLY ONE to report the spam to me.  I hope others follow your example in the future, so that I can find out about people sending this spam garbage thru PMs.

    Contrary to what the conspiracy theorists would have you believe, I don't have access to individuals' private inboxes, so I have no idea what kind of junk is circulating unless someone tells me!

      I think this may have given another spammer the same idea, because another LP member tipped me off to someone trying to get people to instant message him for his "syndicate".

      Maybe I'll have to filter all PMs from new members, just like I have strict controls on the forums for new members.  I hate to do it, but this spam crap is really getting to me.
