    Is there a way to report users that spam via PMs. For example just now I was spammed by a newbie called lanasa trying to sell fake Rolex watches. There needs to be something in place to report (ab)users like this.

    The "Contact Us" link at the bottom of any forum page is usually your best option.

    Q isn't on right now, so if all you had done was PM him, the spammer would still be going. Fortunately, I saw this thread, so he's now been banned. But rather than posting publicly about it, a Contact Us submission is more likely to get the attention of any mod or admin online at the time.
