Forum Spam

It has come to my attention that some unscrupulous members are spamming other members using the forum email and PM facility, this is totally against the forum rules.

If you get any uninvited emails or PMs, please report it to me or any of the moderators, and the offending membership will be revoked.

Re: Forum Spam

Well, one member who joined and spammed a lot of people about his apartment hotel in Kusadai has now been banned.

Another couple have had been asked to refrain from doing so again, in case they did'nt know.

Re: Forum Spam

It's that meat that we use to have when we were kids!

No the definition of spam is

Electronic junk mail or junk newsgroup postings. Some people define spam even more generally as any unsolicited e-mail. However, if a long-lost brother finds your e-mail address and sends you a message, this could hardly be called spam, even though it's unsolicited. Real spam is generally e-mail advertising for some product sent to a mailing list or newsgroup.

Thank you Carol, you're absolutely right about the introductions, some people just don't seem to have manners.

CJD - I also got this same email. I assumed it was sent by accident but it now sounds like spam.
If it was a mistake or misunderstanding then fair enough, otherwise some sort of action needs to be taken.
