Reporting someone for username or e-mail, not their post?

by John.Wilkinson / June 22, 2005 2:28 PM PDT

How would someone go about reporting someone for an obscene username (for instance, the new member cuteharleyb****) or for sending nasty e-mail through the link in a profile? I know that both are against Cnet policies, but as far as I know, it is only possible to report an offensive post.

on a post by,(for instance, the new member cuteharleyb****) and complain to the mods -i believe Lee Koo gets the alerts too.

as for the email problem, either ignore it, or, on a post from the member who sent it, click "offensive post" and copy and paste the email into the box -again, Lee Koo will get a copy...

hope this helps
