THis is a pm that a llot of members recently received from my Chat clubs ... a male member of my chat club also received this pm Confused

the same person had a different id and sent the same pm to another friend in a CC a while ago !

This is by newbies with Zero posts but just spam on pms

this is repeated spam...

although monitoring newbies cannot be an easy task, can some restrictions be brought about on spamming capacity in pms for a given hour for specific problem zones??




SOme of us are also facing sufficient stalker problems in CCs due to the "My Posts" button. WHile it is interesting to see IF try and make great strides in the social networking zones, a certain amount of security features to protect members should also be brought in. Would it be possible to restrict the My Posts visibility to the Friend list and the Dev team alone?


Expanding without tackling user security features only makes us users vulnerable to stalking among other unenviable tasks Confused

You should report such PMs to global moderators so they can ban such creepy members :)

And I don't agree that my posts is a security problem coz all it does is group your posts together which are visible to anyone on the internet anyways whether or not they are groupedConfused

oh i knw it shud be reported..but the same person creating new ids is a recurring problem which cannot be solved by just reporting


well the posts are visible anywya.. but there is no necessity for me to go to Ur posts section and see what u have written all over the forum and quote it elsewhere... when targettign a specific user..it becomes a security issue
maybe u havent experience the scenario..but this is another perspective of the same issue

I also got this pm caro and so did a friend of mine (trivs). This one is the height of insanity. "i want to do friendship with you' pms were still tolerable, but this one is too much!

if u guys find caros screenshot weird,what would u call this pm??

OFFENSIVE CONTENT REMOVED

and i wont bother requesting mods to ban this person....as anyone can see,this newbie profile with zero posts was specifically created to abuse through pms...so the person maybe an existing IFs member with another account.sorry for the foul language...it isnt suited to my taste either.but well,at least i didnt write it

ugghhh..someone PMed you THIS??!! Dead Pathetic!!

Now that IF is going on the lines of orkut/FB.....we should have Privacy settings for scrap book...

something should be done about PM service... as well...some weirdos PMing you "will you be my friend" n all ....thats so annoying.. Thumbs Down

but i dunno why we need the My Post button?? Confused...its just making IF stalker friendly....or like you said..it should be made visible to friends and DT only...

EDIT:-

@adi - WTH??!! Dead Dead Dead ..ugghh... Dead Dead

@aditi and caroline

god what sort of Pms are these??

I never received them.. thanx GOd...

but yes security should be increased.. i have personally been a victim Of stalking.... and the My Post option is a no good doer...

a lot of new stuffs are added on I-F but they all look so random.. i have interacted in orkut, they have much better security options these days....
