Hi,
I'm new here, how's it going?

"Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity" - Albert Einstein

Yep, I got one too. Not sure that a computer forum is fertile ground for this sort of message though

I am guessing the username was Patricia? I hope so, because that was the account I just banned.

If you don't tell the Mods, then we can't do anything about it.

In future, the best way of dealing with any spam via the Private Message system is to forward a copy of it the moderators so that it can be dealt with promptly.

Thanks. :)

Thanks, Jen. Yes, it was 'Patricia'. I couldn't immediately find a contact-mods link, so checked for a thread about the issue and added to it, figured someone would notice it if there seemed to be a significant problem.

Ah, I see. List of moderators prominently displayed at bottom right of page...... I'm SURE it wasn't there before.

Hi Annie,

An easy way of notifying us is just to hit "Forward" on the spam private message and then type in the Moderators name under "Recipient Username(s)" and send it our way. If you send it to all 3 of us (Jen; Chilling_Silence; Jan Birkeland), then whoever sees it first can deal with it. :)

Cheers.
