Angry PM-spam

Please Login to Remove!

I'd like to ask my fellow board members to use the developer board as it is intended instead to spam personal messages.

I am currently getting up to three messages per day, most of them ordinary questions that are also often covered in similar postings.
Most of them do also look like they are being sent to a multitude of members at once.

If you are one of those sending these PMs:
Be aware of the fact that all users here are not paid supporters.
If you harass me - and probably others as well - we'll be gone and many a question will be left unanswered.

I hope some of the rather new fellow members will learn a bit about netiquette as i am reluctant of sending the mods after them but honestly, i don't want to get a PM about every second topic on this board.

Hey Simon, are you referring to users PMing you with questions rather than posting here in this section?

some are. some are PMing me in addition to posting here. some are adressing me with the names of other users from time to time which let me guess that i am not the only one getting these PMs.

Gotcha. Those that you receive truly spamming you (i.e., unsolicited sales, etc.) please CC to myself or another moderator, and we will be happy to warn, or more, as needed.
