I think they can if they want, if they are bothering you just block them

we'd rather they didn't because we don't know if the linked site is safe. that's why a lot of threads with links to you tube and my space get deleted. but, we aren't able to prevent everything.

i would say that if you are cautious about not going to other sites (especially if you are a child and your parents restrict that too!) then delete the PM.

if you do go to the site and find that it's inappropriate, PM a mod or an admin right away. you can also ignore users by viewing their profile and clicking that option and then you wont get any more PMs from them.

Thats pretty much what I thought. I'm not sure if it's just me or if others are having this problem but I have been receiving pms with links saying please check out my web site or please follow the link to purchase webkinz. From people that have just joined WI.It's one thing to send a link to a friend it's another when it's someone just trying to use WI to push there web site. If someone wants to use WI to get sales then they should be Advertising on WI and paying a fee not just using WI to get pretty much a call list.

Sorry if this bothers anyone it's just my 2 cents

Like spam PM's? I've been getting those too. It happens when you're... just around WI alot, and everyone knows who you are as a WI member. So, when they want to get thier website around, chances are, if you're the first person who comes to their mind, they'll put you on the list. I don't mind PM's from my closest WI friends with links to websites, but from people I've never heard of... it bothers me too. I don't think they should be able to do that. It's annoying.

If its a continuous problem with the same member..forward the PM to a mod with your concern..we dont allow spam in the Open Forums and we wont allow them in PM's either
