We don't read private messages - have you been receiving spam in PM ?

If that PM had a sig about Buddhism, I got that too. If mods are interested, I'll PM the username.

Yeah I got a PM with the same sig... I thought it odd that this new user contact me without first posting a public message anywhere on the boards. Apparently I'm not the only one PM'd by this person.

Personally, I'm not offended by the sig itself (just a supposed quote from Einstein on Buddhism), just thought he was putting the cart before the horse with the PM itself.

Me too!! lol.

I think it would be good is new members need to be moderated before they can post... like give them a one day wait before they can post.

...but from what I understand (for I haven't received any unsolicited private messages yet...), this is happening through private messages.

Are you advocating that the Admins/Moderators monitor private messages? I don't suspect you will get a lot of support for that level of policing. Even if a "waiting period" were enforced, spammers would simply wait for the probationary period to pass before beginning their nefarious activities.

Ones of the things we discussed was moderating a new users first post, which we may do in the future.

In any case, I deleted all PM's sent by James, and banned him.
