Question to forum members

Post by Siri » Wed Mar 25, 2020 5:46 pm

I’ve been wondering, has anyone been sending you spam via private messages through the forum? I’ve been seeing several new registrations here and there that are clearly up to no good, and these get deleted as soon as I spot them. But my problem is that there are others where I can’t be sure, so I’m reluctant to delete them. It has occurred to me that, even though these people don’t post to the forums with a query or answer to a query, perhaps they have registered solely to spam via private messages? Please let me know if you’re receiving nonsense PMs.

You should start a section in forum where is topic like introduction present and the other topic like off discussion should present here. In this people can interact with each other even those who don't have technical knowledge about ship.

If I understand you correctly, this would be a separate section, concentrating on topics other than ships? If so, I’m not sure that would be a fit, since this entire website has to do with ships and seamen. Besides, I’m sure there are plenty of other such general forums “out there”. Also, I would worry that we would get a lot of nonsense.

However, I’m certainly open to hear the opinions of other members.

Please stay safe and healthy!

Greetings Dear Lady
This has always been a nuisance, which you have admirably dealt with over the years. Just delete them after breakfast. Us Oldies can have a good laugh, SOMETIMES !!!

Best wishes

Trust me, Phil, they get deleted even before breakfast, thereby sometimes depriving you of that good laugh! Sorry, not sorry.

Thank you for being here, we go back a long way, through several versions of the forum, you and I.

Than you for responding!

Looks like everything is ok then, but please let me know if you do get private spam messages.
