Private messaging


By ajay


Dear all,

As Grows on You continues to grow we are no doubt going to be the target of a few (hopefully not too many) scams. We had one today. Someone signed up and sent private messages to a few members.

Some of these Internet scams can be quite clever so please do be vigilant here and elsewhere on the Internet.

If you receive a private message or any comment please do check the profile of the person who has sent you the message. An empty profile is probably a bad sign. Please do not feel obliged to answer comments or messages you are not comfortable with.

We believe messaging one another is an important feature and wouldn’t like to take it away – I hope all of you do too. Please do report via the feedback option anyone you believe is abusing this feature and we will delete their account/comments immediately.

Happy Gardening and Safe Surfing
