Reporting Question

Answered

    Recently I used the report feature to report a comment from a user who appeared to be soliciting people to PM him details on their sexual encounters.

    Apparently when I hit the report button it sent the aforementioned user an email with the report details, including my personal email address (which I specifically made non-public).

    Is there a glitch in the system? Should we just PM Dale if we see a suspicious post instead of using the report feature?

      There are still some bugs in how the system handles things such as reports.

      The safest and best thing to do is just PM me and I will take care of it as soon as I can.

      Thanks!!

          @Kitty, PM Dale and tell him who it was so that he can take action. Dale is the overseer of the boards.

          IMO, you can also expose someone like that publicly, so that all legitimate posters can be forewarned and can be on the look out.

              I recently had the same problem & I am very new here. I don’t know how to report but it was a male sending me pm’s asking me sexual questions & details. He did so even after I nicely told him the questions made me uncomfortable. so I did not know how to report so I just deleted his messages.

                  I got an email from TMB saying someone had flagged a thread I had started. When I clicked that link, it led me to someone else’s uncalled for post, at the end of the thread, that had quite a few downvotes. So I am not sure what happened there.

                    Yikes, I just thought of it. Maybe the email wasn’t really from TMB. I don’t know how it all works.

                      Dale, thanks for telling us there are some bugs. I got an email from someone, even though my email is hidden and not available. I have gotten a couple of strange PMs as well.

                        Even with a hidden email people can “contact via email”, is that what happened with you OWM? It still comes via TMB but a personal email is attached and if one replies to it, then it goes to the email and comes directly from your email.

                        Yes. I received an email in that way. It exposed the other person’s email address to me. I don’t know if they saw my email address or not. I didn’t respond by email. I chose to respond by PM and inform them that I now knew their email address.
