Spammers / scammers now using private messages too.

Hi guys, I was wondering if I could request a "report" button or similar for people who are now spamming individual forum members via private messages.

Example I just received below:

  1. Thanks for letting us know. There were a few others who had reported the same PM. That SPAMMER/user has been banned.
  2. Yes but I am a bit upset as I thought she only PM'd me !!

    Once I found out the shameless hussy had chased several other users I gre disheartened and due to the humiliation of being hoodwinked I banned her!!

    Iv'e since sought counselling from the other mods and hope one day to meet the right girl of my dreams.

    It will take some convincing but I am sure my wife will be ok with it.
