Post subject: Block PMs from user

A user at my board has asked me if it's possible to block PMs from a specific user that has sent him abusive PMs. I've looked at both phpbb.com and phpbbhacks.com, but haven't been able to find such a mod. Anybody know of one?

If this is a one time thing then disable PMs for the person who SENT the abusive PMs.

The thing is, I only have one member's side of the story as I don't read users' private messages. Instead of me having to act like a judge in this matter and "punish" a user by blocking his usage of PMs, it would be better if users can themselves choose to block PMs. That way, the "perpetrator" will still be able to send PMs to people that have no grudge with him.

Well, it turns out that the member that had been harassed, had actually just sent a fake harassing PM to himself from another one of his 4 (!) accounts on my board! Suffice to say he's been banned...

Can you ever truly be bored if you're schizophrenic? You always have company! icon_biggrin.gif

What's the deal with some people?! Now I've also had a member using a memory editing program to fake a bug in the game that my forum is about (a free game I'm developing). What's driving these people to pretend to have been harassed and faking bugs? Is it just boredom? I can't possibly comprehend what's driving them... icon_sad.gif
