Private messages temporarily turned off

DEFCON Warning System

Staff member
We have become aware of some trolls harassing people via our Private Message system. To combat this, we have temporarily turned off private messaging.

We'll turn it back on when the trolls give up and go away.

Unfortunately, banning is ineffective due to the use of proxies, and IP bans tend to scoop up the innocent. So turning off PMs is considered the least inconvenient of the options.

Please let us know if you have received any unusual private messages.
