I have received unsolicited PM’s in the past. Quite a bit in fact, and it never bothers me. In fact, I enjoy having a private chat with some Forumosans from time to time. Unsolicited PM’s I receive are usually related in some way or another to something I wrote. And they are always from someone whom I recognize having read some of his/her posts.
Just yesterday I received a very strange PM, though. It’s from a user who registered on March 8th, and this person has not posted anything yet. User name: Elliot_spencer
The PM goes as follows: [i]"hey, can I ask, how long have you been in taiwan and how long you planning on staying?
What do you think? Would you reply? I have not yet replied because A-I’m a bit weirded out, and B-I have not really had time, and C-Because this guy never posted anything.
Have you ever received a PM that had nothing to do with you, or what you wrote from a lurker? Why me?
Apologies in advance, Elliot_Spencer, if you happen to read this, but your PM is very strange to me. You should at least introduce yourself!
