    I apologize in advance for posting this in this forum. I cannot find the appropriate place to report this. My PM box has received a PM that is a message on religion from a member that I do not know. Anyone know where to report this?

    Thanks and again I am sorry to post this here.

    I think I might have just PM'ed T. Barr, but in any case, I too received this message.

    Spam gets you banned.

    ISP 128.241.105.0 has now been banned forever.

    Sometimes some spammers get folk's emails and use those as proxies.
    But not in the PM area.

    PM's have been used lately, I guess for about 2-4 years now.
    They are rarely spammed.
    But it does happen.
    I ban the isp number and that takes care of most issues.
    About once every 2 years.
    I have 6 folks that have been banned on this site.

    Which if you look at the volume and google ratings, and compare that to other forum sites, I know is far lower. This place is very well behaved. It's almost beyond belief.

    Regards,
    Tom Barr
