it has come to the attention of the moderating team that several users have been using the private messaging function for... uhh... less than civil intentions.
needless to say this is highly inappropriate.
if you have been harassed via PM's or the victim of unwanted PM's please feel free to contact a member of the moderating team and we will see to it that any user doing such will face the necessary repercussions.
on another note, complaints of moderation or the karma system will almost always automatically earn a time out. being a general irritant will do the same.
as always, don't be a dick.
thank you for your time and attention.
