I can't find anything in the settings and I'm getting pissed off from all the newbie accounts sending private messages about some ICOs.

Can we have an option to block all messages from new accounts?

I have been getting these for quite a while now and honestly I think we simply can't. Perhaps an option could be implemented to block messages from people with the newbie rank. I don't want to disable my PMs.

I got several messages from people who promote "Bitcointalk messaging services", but the number of messages was not impressive - may be 5 in several months.
Moreover the fact others don't send promotional messages I think means that such services are not popular)

Unfortunately we can't block particular rank. To be honest even if I could, I wouldn't Smiley
At least one ICO offer a day knocks at my PM door and among those, some real "gems" can be found.
The day before yesterday I was hit with an offer written with so ridiculously broken language that I almost spilled my tea.
There was something about furniture loving [sic] and jeans... man, bot translators are still in alpha phase.

One or two PM's a day, with such "lifetime" deals are not that terrible. I can accept this status quo.

You are not the only one mate. Everyday I received many message from newbies as well about a certain ICO blah blah.

I'm not sure if we can block all of them though. But I learn not to be mad seeing my inbox growing LOL. I just deleted all their message without reading any single one of them.

Newbies can no longer send other members PM's unless they opt-in, you shouldn't get these messages anymore.

You are classic example of shitposter who is unable to read post which is only...wait....1 post above yours...posted only 2 minute before yours..You probably received "someone posted while you were typing" message but you didn't bother to read it.

Yes, and it is also both sad and funny to see when russians post in russian into English threads, in telegrams, and get angry if somebody asks them to speak English.
I also get similar spam, but from other channels (telegram, e-mail)

Not so long ago in russian sub-section on forum in "Work" section I saw an offer to "make posts on Bitcointalk" with a payment 1-2 rubles per post ($1-2 cents).

That's why shitposters will exist and will increase in number.
They are not interested to read or even to community, they just need to make posts))

I just bumped here and as I see on MadZ shared link and it directs to theymos post regarding ignoring newbies PM and I found it helpful since I am pissed off also by this newbie messaging such ICO's whether it urges you to invest or promote it. I love that new concept of ignorelist for newbie PM. Thanks to our moderators.
