Roka is right... once a member is banned the PM's went with it. I assume you got the email and then before you opened the PM here he was gone.

We like to be quick with the ban boot

Sorry to you (and any other members) that got this message.

This site does not advocate spamming of it's members via email or pm. I believe it was a pm and like Devilshturtles said the pm was gone as a result of the spammer being banned. There was more than one member that received this spam. Thank you for reporting it to us. It takes all the actions of all the members to keep these kinds of spammers at bay.

I see the time of your post is 9:26 pm. I banned this user and deleted their PMs sent to other members at around 9 pm. That could be why you didn't see it in your PM inbox when you logged on, but did see it in your email (most members do elect to send their incoming PMs to their email address; however, the person sending you the PM does not see or know your email address).

Another member reported that he had received a spam email from this user. I banned the user immediately upon reading the report- it was about an hour after the member submitted the report. Like Janet says, let us know if you receive spam in a PM, and no, we absolutely do not share or sell email addresses.

i just gotta say i love the no nonsense of this site against spammers and other troublemakers but it's still such a friendly place to be and i enjoy every minute here.

If you put off what you can do today until tomorrow it will never get done cause tomorrow never comes. It's always today.
