It has come to our notice that a forum member has been using the email envelope facility to send unsolicited spam messages.
We're horrified to think that someone would use the forum for such purposes, and we can only apologise sincerely to anyone who has received spam in this way. I've discussed the matter with the person involved, who tells me that there was no intention to give offence, and that it will not happen again.
We will not tolerate spamming via the email links under any circumstances - you should use the link only when invited to do so, or if you have a specific reason to believe that the other person will not have cause to resent the intrusion - if in doubt DO NOT use the email link. If in future you receive unwelcome messages from anyone via this route please let me know immediately.
