I reported a user - they sent me a strange PM and commented on an old post. - but I couldn’t put my reason as it doesn’t seem to be working properly. So I have reported a user with no reason. How do I contact admin to tell them the reason - perhaps they will read this and then delete it

If you report the post above then GNHQ will definitely see it.

Tizliz the best way is to opt out of PM's. Go into Inbox, click on settings and then click on block all messages. I have done this after receiving unwanted and odd PM's.

Or you can just block pms from that poster, as I’ve done a couple of times after receiving something weird or unpleasant.

Why block everybody judy then you may miss the best friend you ever will have, ?just block the sender of anything you may not like

Germanshepherdsmum Sat 19-Feb-22 17:14:35

That’s very true! I would really have missed out if I’d blocked everyone.

Thanks Bluebelle I did not know you could do that. Can you tell me how to block individual senders rather than everyone. Thank you.

If you open their PM you'll find a box that says 'Block sender'. Just click on it.

Can people see if you have blocked them? I have just had a look at my inbox because of this post and noticed that I had accidentally blocked someone! No idea how I did it and certainly didnt mean to. I really like them blushgrin

They didn't just PM me but commented on an old posting. I tried replying to Gransnet's email thanking me for reporting but that is not working either.

I will report my own post! Thanks

If the pm is still in your inbox just block further messages from that poster.

BlueBelle Sat 19-Feb-22 18:59:00

Just block the offending pm sender for now then contact GNHQ for whatever the other problem is I m not quite sure what the other concern is but they can sort that

If the pm is still in your inbox just block further messages from that poster.

Or if it’s nasty screenshot it and post it! Shame the person…

Thank you MaizieD that's a very useful tip which I will remember if I receive an unsavoury PM in future.

Is it safe to open the message, though? I’ve just had one of those weird ones and my general rule is to never open anything like that….
