I posted a total of 1 time in the bloody hamster thread, and I really didn't expect to receive random crap PM about aromatherapy + hamster marketing mail.

He sent me as many messages as I have sent him. Dont simply judge based on what he is showing and what he isn't. I absolutely dislike it when people simply send me messages with the idea of selling or pushing their product.

Also, he created multiple threads with the same content in different sub forums.

Please, guys. I think if members PM you maybe 2-3 times, it's okay. It might be due to internet connection problems that they had to click twice or just their short term promoting and advertising activities. If continuous 5-6 times, then you may report here, else I don't find it a big problem thou.  doh.gif

wrong.

if you receive even ONE PM asking you to buy stuff it's grounds for spam.

the point is you don't go around PMing random people like a door-to-door salesman. Lowyat's member database isn't for you to exploit. Use the Sales forum like everyone else.

EDIT:if you think it's alright to solicit sales from other users, remember that if everyone sends just 1 PM to a person, that person will receive probably 100 PMs in 1 go, and fill up his mailbox pretty fast. That's why you aren't allowed to randomly PM people.

Forummer name : leo_tsk

Spamming in threads, posting nonsense links. I've clicked once, it directed to my FB account. Worried that the link might hack into FB accounts and steal passwords and other stuffs.

Did he PM you? It sounds like you just clicked on the classic Facebook redirect link prank.
