    Since November last year, a certain person has been sending me private messages quite a lot, and has been continuing to do so even though I have expressed no interest in wanting to get to know them, especially since a rather inappropriate message was sent from them at the beginning of December.
    This gentleman feels the need to make multiple accounts to message me , so I can never see the back of him.
    The gentleman often puts "??" as the subject of the messages.
    Has anybody else been receiving PMs from this gentleman, or am I being targeted?

    There is an ignore list? What is this witchcraft and why did no-one tell me? Where can I find it?

    I guess you can keep reporting them and not reply to PMs.

    There's nothing else you can do I'm afraid. You can't track IPs and go down to their house and sort them out. Just report them and the CT will deal with it, that's the best you can do.

    Made a thread about it :lol:

    Asked me for nudes a few times. Just report the PMs and ignore list him. I've done that to about 20 of his dupes, over the space of a year.

    EDIT: He's messaged lots of other TSR girls with the same stuff. So he's not targeting just a few

    I recognise the subject title of the troll you've mentioned. Put them on ignore list but I'd actually report the PMs and make a thread in AtCT and get them banned.

    I don't think many people use the contacts feature on TSR. In fact in my 7 years here I only have 6 contacts. That would restrict anyone who might wanna PM them. It's not the best solution really
