Default PM solicitations....Annoying the heck out of me.

Do people think I am a money pit? Every time I make a post about an Idea I have, or every time I post a mailday people pm me with their list of cards that I might need, or if I show even the slightest interest in cards they have, They PM me asking if I want it.

It is getting very frustrating. Now I am getting PM's for things I never would want, or people wanting cards from my PC. What do I do with this spam? Is there a way to report it? I am getting very frustrated with buying and selling on the forums now. I am seriously thinking about only buying and selling on ebay and through Youtube.

Thanks.

You could edit your preferences to receive PMs only from people on your contact list or Board Moderators (http://www.blowoutcards.com/forums/p...do=editoptions). That could definitely end the flood of spam PMs

Thanks so much. I am sure that will help. I don't want to lose it in a PM again.

Unwanted Marketing = Spam. If I wanted a card i'd post in a B/S/T Section.

Believe me... everyone... and I mean EVERYONE is desperate to buy/sell/trade their collectibles. Even worse, most are wanting to 'sell' so they could buy other things. I can't imagine how many people are guilty of being desperate for money..... so they could indulge in other things for their pleasure. We're all guilty of that.

So don't lose it if you get all of those spam emails..... be cool... relax and take it easy. Just 'ignore' them. Hey, women are good at that.

Good luck.

That would be nice...If I was a woman.

And to the person who was wondering if I fell for any of the emails, yes if the seller gave me a good price. It is getting ridiculous though and it feels like people want to say nice things only to get my money. When someone offers me an 8 x 10, when all I want is cards, or asks if I will sell some of my PC, then it gets annoying.

This is what I want to do to anyone who sends me an unsolicited PM requesting a card that I stated is NFS/NFT:
