Done :) And the offending member has been banned.

So I guess that member won't be getting my PM. Oh well... (And, I had such fun writing it.)

A thanks from me too! ;)

I think it's time that PMs sent from Moderators and Admins do not display the spam button, so that they do not get attacked unnecessarily by such members. Hmm... Maybe we could include Travel Gurus as well.

ok, so did anyone else receive a PM from that loser - congrats on blocking him so quick - his posts barely lasted a minute!

Providing I can still hit the spam button for anything Phil sends me, that's fine

On second thought, maybe not... better don't, to prevent abuse by Travel Gurus themselves. It's possible!

History has shown there's reason for skepticism. But, if we told you about that history, we'd have to have you demoted to budding member. That's a horrible price to pay for such boring knowledge.

Though none of my PMs to misbehaving members have ever been flagged, I do think the inability to flag a Moderator's PM isn't a bad idea. Granted, it's not a high priority list item, but those flagging a Mod's PM probably wouldn't have received that message had they not violated the TP rules. Thankfully, those minute 2-3 people I have really taken to task have been too busy firing back vulgar epitaphs to think about the "spam" button.

Again, this situation is very infrequent - most offenders are too self-absorbed and want to get in the last word (so don't bother flagging). But, down the line, it might not be a bad addition.
