    Not a place where I thought it could happen, but the more important question is how can the powers that be prevent this and other posers from doing it ad nauseum. How many of you got this:

    "Hello dear
    my name is philomina i am intrested in your profile plz reply to my email (philomina4jamesATyahoo.com so that i will send you my pic
    urs
    philomina"

    There should be a way of flagging the message and account to the admins..!

    Get the picture first. This is the internet. It could be an old man in a hat.

    actually you are in the wrong forum. If you would have looked up General Forum you would have seen that this isn't the first case and that the powers that ne do something.

    NEVER reply to such a message since at least one case of mistaken banning has taken place.

    There is - send feedback at the bottom of the page. It works too - at least, the last time I sent feedback on such a message, the user was banned in a day (I assume other sent feedback as well).

    Me too. (I mean I too misread the title of the site.
    I am still keeping tons of sex toys in the attic.
    But since I used to play chess in ancient past, I stayed, hoping for some naked chess-romance.)

    My first thought as well!
    I did copy the note and sent it as feedback to admin. Last time I sent a note through feedback, they did address it.
    Did not reply to sender!
    We will see.

    Got this reply via e-mail:
    Dear DanTriola,

    Thanks for alerting, all this user's spam messages have now been removed and the
    account banned.

    They appear to have sent more messages than should be permitted for a new user,
    so this is being investigated.
    Please let me know if I can help further,

    Regards,

    -Russ

    That was prompt!

    Why have "philomina4james" as part of the email? That severely limits her (?) chances in terms of responses from anyone not called James.
