I have received what appears to be a spam PM; it just asks me to contact a gmail address.
How do I report such a message as "Inappropriate" ?
(I have reported the sender).
The user has been removed from the community page. I apologize about the spam direct message.
Thanks, Kevin B.
That addresses this specific case - but is there a general way to deal with such issues?
Incase it happens again ...
You can visit the user's profile page and report to a moderator. I expect this case to be rare, but if you feel there is some detail that will help moderators, ping me a pm with the reasoning and I'll let the team know.
Yes - as noted, that's what I did.
But reporting gives no opportunity explain the reason for the report.
Presumably, moderators cannot see PMs - so it might appear to be a spurious report.
The message in question is still in my inbox and, if I click the user name in it, the user's profile page is still there.
