Using the forum email system to spam members will result in instant and permanent banning.

I was just forwarded some spam from a few of you from a member promoting Their sales on another site. I checked email logs and this member sent almost 30 emails through the forum system in less than 15 minutes. One spam mail every 30 seconds. They were banned in the middle of it. Who knows where it would have ended?

I apologize to those of you that got spammed, and thank those of you that forwarded the spam to me so I could act.

We have had, since the beginning, a forum explicitly for this so people that are interested can check out your stuff.

I got one too and I didn't appreciate it.
This is not the first time this has happened.
A few months ago another member here sent me a few emails
asking me to check out his items on eBay.

I didn't come on this forum to buy stamps or sell.

And I really hate getting bugged.

Excellent work Admin.

It's just like the telemarketers that phone during the most annoying times. But, that's what call display is for.

Don't grumble that the roses have thorns, be thankful that the thorns have roses
