Who is Laurel and how do I go about finding her to forward messages to?
Laurel is the one who owns Literotica (with Manu the techie). She approves all stories and deals with all problems such as spam and unacceptable behaviour.
The only way to contact her is by Private Message to her as Laurel - note the capital L
Spam Private Messages are a recently increased nuisance. Forwarding the offending Message to Laurel usually gets the Private Message deleted from your inbox and everyone else's as well.
One peculiarity of the Private Message system is that if spam Private Messages are deleted from everyone's inbox the Unread counter wll continue to show an Unread Message that is no longer there. The counter resets within 24 hours.
