How to report a PM.

There are times when people may choose to use the private messaging system as opposed to the main forums when interacting with other members. For example, some may use the private messaging feature to facilitate the details of plant or seed trades, or arrange a group visit to a natural area. Members are welcome to use this feature or not, at their discretion but we would like to ask that they follow the Golden Rule of treating others as you would have them treat you. Once in awhile, however, people donít always remember or respect the Golden Rule, and now there is a way to quietly let the site administrators know.

In the upper right corner of Private Messages received in your inbox is an icon that looks like this:
When you believe that a Private Message is outside the bounds of what is acceptable here at Wildlife Gardeners, clicking on this icon will forward the PM to an administratorís attention. There is a note field for any comments that you wish to make. The administrator will determine what steps should be taken.

What sorts of things are outside the bounds of our private messaging system? Spam certainly, although we would like to encourage the reporting of private messages believed to be offensive, inappropriate, or unwelcome. Occasionally members might private message, violating the Golden Rule. Sometimes gentle reminders go a long way to remind members of the Golden Rule although we will take a more aggressive approach, when warranted, to nip a chaotic or mean spirited element in the bud.

Please use this reporting function responsibly. When we all look out for Wildlife Gardeners, we all benefit.
The tendency of man's nature to good is like the tendency of water to flow downwards.
