One of your fellow TechRepublic members has sent you a private message:

From: QASIMARA
Subject: G-Man
Message:
What's with your online contact G-Man talking about train wrecks in a heated discussion about 4G marketing ploys online today? Can you speak for him? If not, I'd please strongly suggest you cut the connection you have with him or get him to take back what he typed.

is there a bug in the system redirecting PM's to the wrong address?

Thank you for finding this important bug

by brandons In reply to weird email?

This is a bug in the site. The private message feature should only be available when two users are both following each other. Unfortunately, what appears to be happening is that as soon as someone starts following you as a contact, they are able to private message you.

We will work to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.

As a temporary workaround, you can disable private messaging by:
- Go to Preferences, http://www.techrepublic.com/members/preferences/
- Check "No" under the Contact Permissions section
- Save your changes.

Once again, thank you for reporting this issue and we appreciate your patience while we work to resolve it.

This is now fixed

by brandons In reply to weird email?

Thank you again for bringing this bug to our attention. The fix has deployed live and this should no longer be an issue for our users. Now, in order to send/receive private messages, both users must be following each other.
