    If anyone gets a private message that they feel is suspicious, please report it immediately. Then moderators can take care of it. There should be a report button or option to report. Or you can private message the moderators.

    I had one, and I didn’t reply to it. The person must have deleted it, because it is gone.

    I agree with Karen, report or notify a moderator right away.
    If you feel threatened or if you feel uncomfortable say something.
    We will look into it.

    Just because it is a private message doesn't give anyone has the right to harass someone or make someone feel uncomfortable.

    Do not respond to any suspicious message you may receive.

    Copy and paste the message to a moderator, if you have no report button option.

    I don't know about the frequency but even one is bad. We just wanted to remind everyone to report anything suspicious.

    I got a strange private message a couple weeks ago. Somebody was talking about being in the military, retiring, having no friends, and wanting to make friends here. It wasn't threatening nor did it say anything bad or offensive. Still strange though and very out of place considering this is a website about goats. She never mentioned anything about having/owning goats. I was very confused and it was gone the next day. Strange.

    :haha:
    Funny story. At the time I got the message, I actually DID reply to it. Wasn’t sure what the deal was but I felt bad at first for them. Now that I know it was some kind of strange message sent to everybody..o_O
