    I was too. I ended up turning off private messaging in my profile.

    I’ve gotten a boat load also. Gonna look into Bulldog73’s suggestion about disabling the private message function.

    It took me a bit to figure it out, but worth it IMO

    I can’t seem to find where to do this. Could you possibly walk me thru it. Thanks

    At the top right there is a button called "settings" next to "my profile", then on the left side of the screen in the "my settings" table there is a section called "my account" and in that list is a "general settings" link. Click on that and the second section is called "Messaging & Notification" and under that is a "Private Messaging" portion where you can click the button "Private Messaging Off".

    This is all on my laptop so not sure how it looks on mobile.

    I'm getting spammed also, but I leave the private messages turned on in case someone wants or needs to send me a legitimate message.
