    Default What can I do about a new member that is Harrassing me?

    What can I do about a new member that is Harrassing me? This member has sent me 13 PMs in the last couple hours harrassing me. I have told them everytime that they need to just leave me alone but they dont listen. Any Mod that might read this please contact me so we can figure something out. Thanks for your time and have a Happy Holiday everyone! Hope Santa brings you all the new gear you can stand!!!

    Go to your user control panel and put them on ignore mode
    The trail was here before we arrived, and it will still be here when we are gone...enjoy it now, and preserve it for others that come after us

    You will see their name w/o content. It takes an extra click to read their posts should you be inclined to

    This member is know BLOCKED!!! Thank you Egads. WB will be ALOT smoother for me now. I just hope that this person doesnt cause any trouble with any other members here on Whiteblaze. I hate to see a person get on here and ruin it for people...

    Either that, or you could start posting their PM's for all to see! They would get the hint really quick for sure!
    Nothing is foolproof to a talented fool.

    If you lurk on a WB forum without signing in, you'll see the member's posts. The "ignore" blockage only works when you're signed in.

    Post the PMs here along with their user name.

    Stop touching me. He's touching me! Stop touching me! WB he's touching me! Tell him to stop touching me! Kind of reminds me of those silly sibling rivalries in the back seat of the car!

    Happy to hear he/she is not touching you anymore Josh! Got to love that Ignore Mode.

    Usually, I'd never say that. But 13 pms in a couple hours? Post 'em. Post 'em now. And I'm curious...

    You can also let a mod know- PM gator and see if he can do anything about it. (I think blocking is fine, but if this person is really harassing you, they'll probably do it to others and just continue to be a right pain up the royal arse. So, might as well report 'em.)

    Best way would be an extremely clever (not nasty) retort or comeback that puts em in their place so they're too embarrased to continue. Second best way would be the ignore button.
