Does anyone else get spam inbox messages? I'm like ..oh, hey. Someone from here actually decided to PM me for some reason. And then I get excited wondering what it is ..and then it's spam. And I get significantly less excited.

Yep. A lot.
I've gotten messages offering me everything from penis enhancement to hot ladies to to 90% sale off designer purses to just plain gibberish.

Yeah, I see them. Report them if you get them and we'll ban the user. After you report them, feel free to delete the message. Or buy their penis enhancement anti breast cancer imitation shoes and handbags. Whatever.

Pretty much this. I get all excited and then I cry a little.

Well, I do has the penis envy.
Idiotic question- how do you report a PM? I looked for a link for that the first time I got a spam PM. Now I just delete them, which works just fine, but reporting them would help stop the spam spread around to even more peoples. Or do I PM a mod about it?

RE: PM Sadness; I miss Renee so much and I thought she was finally back and replying to me, then I saw it was just a site for sexy chicks.

Open message, top right hand corner there's a yield sign, with an exclamation mark. That's the report message button.

Thanks Jess! I've been here 7 years and I never figured that out, apparently. xD

I get them constantly, but I don't get excited like you guys. I used to get some really nasty PM on another board, and every time I see that I have one, my stomach drops a bit and I prepare for battle. Or buying Nikes for 50% off or whatever.

I get them too, and feel deflated when it isn't an actual correspondence as well

Bright side? I go and ban them with a vengance........that usually cheers me up just a little, LOL
