Received nasty PM from new member.

I received a nasty PM from a new member in response to a forum post. What do you suggest. Thank you

Honestly though, I've been hearing about this more and more lately. Multiple people have told me about getting nasty or threatening PMs - I have not experienced in personally but I have heard about it in at least five cases. I think it is just horrible. Bullies are taking advantage of the fact that members aren't allowed to disclose what happens via PM to others and I just think it is unfair. It is so cowardly to bully via PM where no one else can see. What can we do about this?

I didn't know you could forward to mods, I received a slew of nasty PM's about my "If you're thinking of getting a puppy" post. He hated everything I said and me..apparently

Joyce, I don't know you and I've only been on here for a short time, but I just want to say that I'm appalled that this is happening to you. Your posts have always been helpful and informative and interesting. I know the post you are getting flack from and I just don't understand it. It was well thought out and right on the mark. Please don't let this keep you from posting. I really enjoy the exploits of Bentley and Ky.

I seem to remember a post where the mods said there wasn't really anything they could do about PMs. Maybe just block the member in question?

Sorry somebody's being rude.

I have received nasty grams and just ignored it.
I also heard that there is not much you can do but try to block that person.
Sorry that it happened to you also.
