Thanks from me too. I was able to delete without viewing. And thanks a million for making the boards a safe haven for all of us.

Not me.  I was hit three times before I made it out of the "loop".   Is there a way to avoid this?

Mods, we love you all for taking care of the house and keeping it organized and safe. Do not despair because one massive (ahem) loser made it through to us in the personal messages section. Alas for me, I saw the PMs before I reached the NEWS/new messages area. That was quite a rude awakening.

Blech.

That makes no sense.  Hmmmmm . . .

Did anyone else have this happen?

AM

Yes, it was visible in your post to me, too.  Thanks, though, for all you do.

Are you guys saying it was WITHIN my post or UNDERNEATH it? 

Because you know PMs all show up in a big chain, right?  If it's underneath, that's how it has to be.  If it's WITHIN, I'm more confused and/or worried.

Unfortunately I found I had a personal message from an email notification, so went right to the message.  I got three messages from the freak...

It's a long chain starting with the list of PMs. At the bottom of the list is the option to "delete selected" without scrolling down to the messages. His messages should not be visible inside your message--maybe before or after like you mention.

As you can see, I'm a newbie.  I also recently started a blog, so my first reaction to this spam was: SICK! YUCK! I'm going to have to cancel all of my Internet involvements!  I feel much better after reading this thread.

When I first joined this board, I wondered why I couldn't access people's profiles.  Now I know, and I am VERY grateful.  The IM feature has been really helpful.  I hope it won't become necessary to disable this feature for newbies, but I will certainly understand if the moderators choose to do this.

Thank you for all you do.  The children's writing community is so specialized.  It is helpful to have this carefully monitored community accessible and on the Internet.

Thank you.  I logged on last night and there were two posts for me.  I was pretty shocked when I opened them and it was terrible.  I didn't know who to contact about this.  thanks for doing what you can to make sure that this stays off our board.

Thanks so much, Anne Marie. I modified my post and didn't realize that this had already been taken care of. I really appreciate you and everyone here. Sorry for any misunderstanding. I was only trying to help.

AM for me his were above your post so I couldn't open yours without seeing his. I'm lucky though, I have my own office. No children around. I'm sorry he snuck in and hopefully too many children weren't around when the message was opened.

Things like that just make me roll my eyes and think - yeah digital photography can do wonders. Delete.

Thank you all for clearing it up quickly.

FYI, you (and anybody who is reading this) can set up your pm page so that new messages are on top.    Then you don't have to scroll down to see the new stuff.  Go to Profile, then Look and Layout Preferences and click the appropriate box.

I deleted all three right away, so I going by memory here, but I'm really sure it was within your post. I remember thinking it was very odd to include the pic with the warning.  :green:

Gail,

Let me ask you this--do you have a bunch of pms in your inbox or do you delete them after you read them?

I think you have nothing to apologise for, you couldn't possibly have prevented it. Thanks for being so caring! What sickos there are in our world. I feel so sorry for these people's own children (hopefully they have none!)!!
