Blocking private messaging feature

  1. It would be nice to be able to block certain individuals or to only accept messages from a few certain individuals in the private messaging. Right now, I have had to turn the function off completely because of a few insane users sending repeated unwanted messages to my mailbox.

    Put the few insane users on your ignore list and you won't see PMs from them.

    The problem is that the sender on a person ignore list is still able to send private messages and "believes" you've received them even though you have him/her on ignore.

    Isn't there a way to actual BLOCK the senders ability to send you a message without the receiver having to disable his entire private message that prevents others from also sending pms ???

    A sender that is unable to send a message is a clear message to the sender that we have him/her on ignore in comparison to a sender being able to send the message but not know that we're unable to read it.

    Actually, the system works as intended. If the user gets a clear message that he's being blocked, he may try to register another account for the sole purpose of reaching you via PM or publicly that way, and that's not what we want at all. We'd rather the PM look like it has gone through and that there is no response from you. Sure, he could continue to send you PMs but who cares if you can't see them?
