    We need some form of moderation on PM's!
    Im starting to recieve spam in my PM's from fellow linux.com members. Apparently there is no way to report it, or report the sender, or anything. We need some form of moderation there as well as with the groups if anybody expects this site to survive. Here is a copy of the message that was sent to me by a user with the nickname lizzy. [quote]Dear Friend, I know that this is an unusual platform for us to be discussing this Kind of business but the situation has necessitated me to use this Medium to communicate you for now. But let me introduce myself to you. I am Miss. Elizabeth Mark, the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance department of my Bank. In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of US$14.5M, (Fourteen Million, and Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars) at our head office Accra Ghana, that belongs to one of our foreign customers, who died along with his wife and only son in a plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight number 261 which crashed on 31 January, 2000. The owner of this account is Mr. Morris Thompson an American and great industrialist and a resident of Alaska. It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this Business proposal to you and for our bank to release the money to You, for more detail send me an email in my private email address( elizabethmark28@gmail.com or elizabeth_ssb@sify.com ) Yours truly, Miss. Elizabeth Mark.[/quote]

    O, I see, well thats no fun. One would think a forum meant only for support should be under Learn, not Community.

    There are a couple of things missing here. First, we need a Feedback and Suggestions section on the forums. I say this because there are many things that need attention, for instance the way there are multiple groups on the same topics. It seems there is no form of moderation at linux.com, as far as groups anyway. Second, it would be great to have a General Discussion board. Sometimes people have things they would like to discuss that just dont belong with any specific distro.
