Yea... I hate spam, its not very cool at all. I hate getting PM's like that and I hate when people advertise on your thread, its disrespectful and down right rude. I have not run into anything like that... yet.

Spamming profiles is against the rules too... so if someone you don't know is randomly PMing you or leaving profile comments advertising their threads, feel free to flag it or PM a mod.

May I add on?

I think you can delete the post now on your profiles. You check the check-box and then click delete. The mods need a rest. You are in charge on your profile (with some mods and admins) and you can delete the post. I think that's how you do it since I didn't get one of those... well, not yet.

Default Re: Ads

We're not allowed to advertise like that, so I'd just flag it when yousee a thread like that.
Also flag advertising Private messages or profile messages.

Default Re: Ads

This is against the rules, and if you continue to recieve ads from the same person more than once, PM them saying that you don't appreciate them sending you random stuff and if they don't stop you will report them for multiple offenses breaking the advertising rule. Here is a suggestion for advertising PMs:

Here is what they send you (don't click the link):

Dear Victim,

Hey! I'm having an avvie contest and I wanted to know if you would enter. Here's the link:
www.whatevermylinkis.com

Thanksies!
Advertiser

Here is how you could reply:

Dear Advertiser,

Please refrain from sending me advertisements, as it is against the rules. I will let it go this time, because you might not have known it was not allowed. However, next time you send me an ad, I will report you for multiple offenses.

Sincerely,
Victim

I hope this has helped!

Victim.... hee hee!

Another example:

On your Webbie photo thread, someone- we'll call 'er 01234musthavemorewebbies56789- posts:

"Come read my story!

www.wistorysoandsocmxjdfuejnmskncism.com"

(Link's fake.)

You could tell them in a PM:

"Dear 01234musthavemorewebbies56789,

I think your story is very cool. However, please do not advertise out of the blue like that.

--gupdoo3"
