    PM Spamming?

    Hi guys,

    Today I recieved a couple of PM from a member called Jeannette. This is what she wrote on both messages:

    I don't have anything against buddhism but... why send a message like that? twice? It doesn't make any sense to me.

    Has this happened to any of you?

    It didn't happen to me Ikki. How about the others?

    Maybe she just chose your name randomly or maybe she thought that you're Chinese. Anyway, I don't think I would consider 2 messages as spamming. Getting a lot of emails on viagra, which I get regularly, is what you call spamming.

    I recieved a PM today from the same person with exactly the same text as mentioned above by Ikki. Guess it is Buddha in disguise trying to spread buddhism

    I too receive the same message from Jeannette. And I've to agree that it is little spammy message because it neither says Welcome nor about Businessadviceforum but about Buddhism which I guess is little offtopic.
