Does anybody even monitor stuff like this? Does anybody actually read the Faq/rules?

Can't say I ever received any harassment through the PMs, you guys must be hardcore. But I agree, if you are being harassed by means of this then those should be able to be forwarded to the Administrator and the person banned.

Can we get an answer on this?

I think we need to move carefully with this. I agree that harassment could be a problem, but, how would this be handled? In the past, moderators urged people to "take private" their differences. Now we may possibly be banned for having done so?

Why couldn't we just not read or delete those PMs we find offensive? Just a question.

We can stop pm's,but not to just one user.

If a particular person wants to continually harrass us via pm should we have to take it? I don't believe so.

I think that it's easy for a member to feel that they have been targeted for harassment...and it's a lot easier to see this in public posts. However, PM's are another world where it is harder to verify.

Currently, we are not able to resend any PMs that we receive on to another/admin for review. Don't know if Admin can read these PMs or not...but the fact that communication is done outside of any monitering eyes makes it very prone to abuse.

We should set some kind of rule on this. If a member feels that they have been threatened, or abused, all emails should be reviewed by admin...and banning results.

I wonder...is there anyone here up on the current laws that involve internet harrassment, and site responsibility?

I agree with Kogas on this one. If someone is sending you harassing PMs, you can just delete them unread.

Banning because of PM presents a slippery slope. What if they are sending messages to your email?

Hopefully, when the software is updated, it will include an "ignore this user" function.

Ditto what JKogas and ZZ said. We'll just have to wait for a decent forum upgrade.
