Where does one report unwanted PM's of a religious nature?

Hi,I'm new here, how's it going?"Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity" - Albert Einstein---Stephaniehttp://stephanie.infernohost.net

Thanks for your email Ric. I haven't had any religious stuff, maybe my ISP is picking them up first? They're pretty good on that. I'll let you know if I do.

I got one from Stephanie also and i see she's been booted. If she is indeed a Buddhist then she should know that she will experience bad Karma for her actions.

Buddhism as a philosophy doesn't exactly favor trying to talk others in to their way of thinking. This PM is not only unethical from a netiquette standpoint, but also remarkably un-Buddhist.

On behalf of the eight-fold path and all the good things that Buddhism offers, please accept my apologies for this woman's BMs, er, I mean PMs.

For my part it was someone who called themselves "Stephanie". And, yes, Buddhism. At first I thought it was a beer commercial with two D's. Then I tried to relate it to photography and couldn't. ( I'm a photographer, to clarify)

For my knowledge, I would like to know if this is common on forums for admins and mods to have to filter this type of spam.

Reason is that I have a lot of students for which I thought I would like to put up a limited forum of some type. I was a mod at another forum until the admin got some crossed wires. I had to deal with some of this there.

Should this be a common problem I will stay with email groups.

This is a very responsive admin and I am grateful for that. I am rebuilding my site and will place a link to this site for any Mac users who attend if that's OK.

By the way Ric, how is the weather across the Atlantic? (I can't call it the "pond", it grates)
