Hi, I was just wondering what the forums policy is on members harassing other members through PM's and such. Can I report them anywhere?

Hi Lunar, we've taken steps to resolve this issue. My apologies for you having to endure the childish behavior of another member. His ISP has been tracked and further acts of harassment will be sent to the proper authorities.

As Steve said, this particular case has been solved quickly and easily because the subject at hand has commited serious offenses in public posts today, so he's just been permanently banned from the board, end of story.

But to answer your general question about harassment by PM, we would not be comfortable taking action in the extremely rare case where a person behaved properly on the board, but improperly through PM's which we do not have access to. In this case I guess the best option would be for the target person to simply delete any PM sent by the offender without reading it, and I really doubt that an inherent troublemaker or socially inept individual would be able to behave publicly on the board long enough without getting expelled eventually for other offenses...
