Thank you and regards.

    Don't waste your time on it...delete and move on. Even now you have already wasted valuable time, which you could have spent better.

    I'm not selling anything in here.

        I didn't say that. Ok, forget what I said...go spend half your working day on reporting spammers, because as we all know, that will make them go away and nobody will spam you ever again. :rolleyes:

          Ricardo, as you see more and more of Ken's posts, you'll realize that "caustic and sarcastic" is just Ken being Ken. It's what he does.

          I think you're mistaking which inbox Ricardo is talking about. If it's his regular email box, I would tend to agree with you. No sense trying to bail the ocean with a teacup.

          If it's his WF message inbox, and he's getting PM spam, hitting the report button takes less than a minute and can result in that spammer's account going up in a cloud of smoke. Chalk it up to community service...

    There are not supposed to. You could contact the Help Desk and let them know. The mods may be be aware it's happening.

    There's a report link and icon. Click it if you truly got spammed. I mention 'truly' because sometimes people ask questions and sometimes people PM them with VERY RELEVANT information. However, if this isn't the case, then you truly got spammed and you can report the offender.

      Yes, I really did get spammed. The guy is selling something and he says I asked for that in the forum. I did not ask for it. I looked for the report link and icon, could not ind it. Thanks for your help. Regards.

    Ignore it. There are far better ways to spend your time. If it keeps up then report it. I get spam all the time here. Just delete it.
