How Are people either sending me me links to porn sites or sex based sites? I am scared on how this site allows those types of links to be sent. I am receiving emails every once in a while that leads me to either a porn site or a site for sex hook ups. I don't want to receive these and there must be ways to stop this. If anyone can tell me how to stop this it will be greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

Thanks for visiting the help forums :)

Its not so much a case that users are "allowed" to send these messages and spamming issues are not unique to soundcloud either.

Soundcloud are working hard to deal with these issues and, as a user myself of soundcloud for around 5 years, i have seen a massive reduction in this activity, but it is difficult to eradicate it completely as fake users & bots always looking for new ways to try & "fool" the system so some messages do slip through the net.

The best thing to do when getting any of these messages is to click the block user option which will then give you the option to report the message as spam. This will send that users details to the Soundcloud security guys who will review the message and, if deemed unsuitable, which would certainly seem likely in this case, the user would then be blocked & have their account deleted.

I was just followed by someone who had a nude pic. Please continue your screening.

Well, all people are different, and they are educated differently, it looks like you are very conservative and you do not to receive such emails or messages, so you can simply ban accounts and emails that send you such links. But I do not have a constant partner and I use such websites very often. For example, I have a very busy job and I do not have time to look for a woman for relations, but I have enough money, so I hook up with women from escorts in London. They know what I exactly want, and all of them are very beautiful, I didn't see such beautiful women in normal life.
