4 PM's not spam, but not for me

Post by Dynamic Mike »

Hi, I have received 4 private messages from 2 long established members Martin Walker and John Egan that weren't addressed to me.

No bother whatsoever but just wondering if some forum glitch was misdirecting messages.

EDIT, no action required Martin has sorted it :thumbup:

I think we can blame finger trouble and John's unfamiliarity with the less-than-clear Forum PM system, rather than malicious intent.

I don't know why the PM system currently allows everyone access to global broadcast modes that engulf the entire membership, but we will investigate and remove those options if at all possible.

Same here. I thought I'd become popular all of a sudden! Don't all rush back and say 'Nah" LOL

Whoops - sorry about that everyone! :oops:

It's not often that we actually get to see a glitch in The Matrix, but rest assured (as Hugh said) we'll do our best to make sure this can't happen again.

I received 7 messages from 3 different users. I didn't open them just in case!

Of course we can Tomás - thanks for your understanding ;)

I've already had a request from one user who has been a forum member for 16 years but never ever posted, to permanently delete his account after I spammed tf out of his inbox :shifty:
