SPAM! In PMs

First time for me someone screen name of ct4oz sent me what seems to be a spam message. Doesn't seem to be a Report Spam icon on PMs or did I miss it?

No...don't think there is a spam button. I've gotten 1 or 2 of those...I just copy it and send it to a Mod. Seems to work.

OK, I banned him. Yeah, forwarding the message to a group or super mod is best. Thanks!

Well duh TG...was trying to make it relevant to the majority of folks.....lol

1. "chandler - a maker (and seller) of candles and soap and oils and paints"

2. "chandler - a retail dealer in specified goods or equipment"(from the free dictionary online)

For those less traveled..."ship's chandler - a dealer in sails and ropes and other supplies for sailing ships". (also from the free dictionary online)

Modern usage
Common in overseas ports as someone who can provide various supplies to visiting vessels. (from my interpretation and experience...lol)

Jeez..what am I gonna do about these jarheads ..didn't even know what water weighs...(course neither did I for sure till I looked it up)...lol! J/k TG
Good thing he smacks down spammers so well..or we might not put up with him...
