    I am always amazed at how little spam gets through the county system.

    Got it as well.

    You can try going: User CP > Profile Privacy > Visitor Messages > and hide it from everyone (to whatever option you want)

    also you can soft moderate these messages so they can get hidden by clicking the check box then delete in the drop down (They will get replaced with whatever you put in the reason)

    All I get is email about my man engine (How did they know my civic was bust?) and how I can avoid disappointing my wife by getting a huge instrument (she has never shown an interest in anything musical) and most recently they want me to give my wife loving madness by being a passionate sinner.

    Oh an apparently my man sausage is not going to impress anybody, though in all honesty the bratwurst from Llidol has been a little off lately
