today I logged in and got a PM from a spambot, I sent it over to a staff member, that's the only feature there was, but, my curiosity lies in the fact, why can't we report PMs, we can report everything else so why not PMs? I thought at one time we could, it's basically a he said/she said sort of situation in regarding the reporting of a PM by simply sending the conversation around. perhaps that's why the site is set up the way that it is, but for those who don't understand how to report a PM or what to do, and since the site doesn't have the ability to report a PM, what should a person do?
the most logical (that I could think of) is sending a staff/moderator, a blue of course not teal or yellow, and possibly PM that said staff member (in case it's something uncomfortable or a spambot situation/other), drop off the user's name and the message and then submit? then let the staff handle the situation once they roll back around? if there is any other option please let me/us know so we'll know what to do in the future.
I did search, but nothing came about, not even in the archives, so I thought I'd create a post in the hopes to help others in the future with what to do when this situation happens to them.
