    Why is this person sending me a private message? The message makes no sense to me.

    He includes a link in the private message. I checked the link with www.siteadvisor.com AND a large percentage of the user reviews say the site is NO GOOD despite siteadvisor saying the opposite.

    I was not going to visit the site anyway, especially under the circumstances, but I would tend to give more credence to the user reviews.

    His macrumors username is turing2

    Where do I report suspected abuse on macrumors.com ?

    I tried to add .jpg attachments of my screenshots, but it does not seem that I have the ability to do that on macrumors because once I click UPLOAD I get sent to a "you are not logged in page".

    We apologize for the inconvenience. He was sending spam via PM last night, and we banned him once we received the first report of it. Unfortunately, some of his spam apparently still got through.
