I got all excited but it's from a journalist. Humph.

Email, I would have thought.

C and P the offending PM in the body of your mail.

They are allowed to pm aren't they? I've had a few over the years I tend to ignore them.

No - they're not allowed to PM, at least in their capacity as a journalist. If you have a look at the PM guidelines, they're specifically told to contact MNHQ.


There's a report button on the message itself that you can use - top left-ish above the actual message if I recall.

I didn't know that.

Most people are lucky enough never to have had a questionable PM.

Here's the relevant part of the guidance.

PLEASE NOTE : Private messaging is NOT for journalists or market-researchers (or advertisers/company reps) to contact Mumsnetters. If you are a journalist or market-researcher and would like to canvass our members' opinions, please mail

If you get an unsolicited private message from a journalist or market-researcher (or someone trying to spam you with advertising), please feel free to report it to us at'

As far as I recall, using the 'Report Message' link actually sends it through to MNHQ - it's just a quick way of doing it without having to insert the relevant details.

No report button on mobile. Will fire up the laptop.

Ah - the mobile app falls down again?

Not the app just the mobile site. But just swapped to desktop site and found it.
