    Got a spam message earlier from a user saying that they saw I was interested in a thread that they posted and they included the link in the PM asking for me to like their thread. First of all, I never could've had an interest in their thread as 1 I never saw it previously, 2 I never liked their thread and 3 I never posted a comment on their post.

    So a few days ago I saw the thread on here offering free Jr. VIP memberships to the one member each month that had the most likes on a single thread so I'm pretty sure this is what's going on. This user is mass PM'ing users telling them that he saw they had an interest in their thread and then posts the URL asking them to like the post. They're doing this in hopes of boosting the like count on their post to win the free membership.

    MODS may want to look in to this because not only is spamming through PM a violation of BHW but I'm also sure it'd be a violation of the giveaway that's running.

    I wasn't going to post the user that sent me this PM but if anyone else has received this kind of PM and wants to post the user that sent it to them, I'd be curious to know if it's the same person that spammed me.

    You have to expect this level of retardedness in the school holidays.

    Yes please. Whenever someone sends an unsolicited message asking for something, hit report and we'll look into it.

    If you want to reply to them or say they shouldn't spam, then that's fine but please don't send anything rude or offensive. You would not believe the amount of times I've had 2 people swearing at each other via PM and then simultaneously reporting each other for being abusive.

    Keeping the moral high ground helps us and gives you a feeling of lofty superiority. I'd highly recommend it :)

    That's pretty funny actually but I always keep things professional, to not escalates the situation. Already reported and will let MODS take it from here.
