    I just got a PM from user Aquarius. who seems to be a JR. VIP who also have a BST thread.

    Here is the PM

    I don't know if this is allowed, so I decided just to post about it. I didn't see any "report" button on the PM and thats why Im posting this here. I don't remember asking or requesting such information anywhere, if I did - Im sorry!

    Please note that Im leaving town for a few days, and I wont be able to monitor this thread for the next 4 days, but I thought I have to post this, as Im pretty sure this is not allowed.

    Cheers

    Why not message a mod and ask instead of publicly shunning the messenger?

    It would be against the rules if he was selling but it looks like he is offering you a free review copy.
    If you don't want it then just decline.

    I deleted the message, yet I didn't think there was something wrong with sharing it, as there wasn't any personal info related.

    Ok thats why I deleted the message. I guess mods will have to deal whether or not this is legal/legit/etc. I just wanted to share my concerns, as I believe this action is unfair to other sellers.

    If it was indeed concerning review copies - then I don't see what the problem is?
