You might want to get the header for that message. It may have some relevant information for the admins.

That member was banned as soon as 'she' was discovered but she had managed to pile up enough posts and then sent 49 PMs ... must be very lonely...:rolleyes:

Anyway sorry about that, we have changed some rules now and a member must be on board 7 days AND have a minimum post count before that can happen again. An inconvenience for new members, perhaps, but it will avoid this kind of nonsense.

Anyone needing direct access to a member or mod during the 'probation period' can enable email messaging in their profile, post a note and request a followup through that avenue (your personal email is not revealed that way)
