ability to "Report this PM to a Moderator"...

lately i have seen alot of ppl getting spam PM's

ok so we all know we can report post to the mods but why cant we report PM's to mods with just the click of a link...this way we dont have to forward the PM to a mod and hope they take care of it...

and yes i realize we have modify the text in pm but surely that little issue could be resolved

Private messages are supposed to be private, and between two users.
I don't like the idea of a mod/admin reading what I say in a private conversation.


As said in previous threads, just put them on your ignore list if they are harassing you.
If they make new accounts to PM you, then report them in ttma section so they will get banned.

Well technically it wouldn't. It would make it easier for YOU to report them, but not for mods to do something about it.
It would be actually be easier if you forwarded it in a PM.

When someone reports a post, the mod(s) in charge of that section gets an email linking them to said reported post. They need to follow it, and that means it would be need to be accessible to any mod(s) that would handle PMs. They still need to do the same amount of work, and we lose our privacy for a quicker way to report them.

just like moding a section only certain mods would be able to do this...and this function could send a copy of the pm to the mod instead of a link (maybe not with this programming but maybe in the future)

and it would help them keep track of who is PM spamming, just like the infraction system helps them keep track of users past history

No, PMs are out of bounds. They're here for a reason. Unless the PMs are just mass advertisements, or filled with pornography, they should not be dealt with according to rules.

Don't want bad PMs?

Use the ignore list.
