  Old  Private Message Spam

Recently there have been a few cases of private message spam that have been brought to my attention. I've decided to take a moment and make an announcement regarding this practice.

Unsolicited advertising through private messages is prohibited here at TalkFreelance.com. Should you be found out (from this day forward), you will be banned permanently from our forums.

A message to current active members:
Should you come across a user spamming/advertising through private messages please forward that message to my PM inbox and I will deal with the user accordingly.

Thanks,
Jeff

LOL - I just posted moments ago in response to paid request. I only joined the other day - so I wasn't able to send PM to the Member. Requiring a certain amount of posts before a Member can send PMs will cut down a lot on the PM spam. Hmm... How many posts must one have to use the PM system here?

Jacquii.
