The best thing now is to put him in ignore
I really think people with less than 20 posts shouldn't be able to PM...

Yeah, that's what I did. The person kept pm'ing me asking me to be friends, and talking about people that I have no idea who they are.

Would you mind showing us a screenshot of this?
I know, curiosity is a bad default, but I really wonder what's up with him... ^^

After seeing that...it "might" not be spam...it's probably just some user out there that wants to bother people, either for their own fun and amusement...or just to piss people off

cause i honestly doubt that someone would just randomly im anyone to just be friends...

hmm...maybe if you had played along that person might've invited you to join his/her forum were you can meet other people just like him/her

It might be a robot, one of the games robot coders play is to try to make a robot that is capable of convincing real people online that it is a person.
