I don't know if this has been addressed before, I checked the thread titles and didn't see it, but I was thinking that it would be awesome if there could be a way to block group messages. There are a few groups I like being a member of, just don't want 50 messages from people I've never heard of everytime I log in. Its a cool idea for group messages, but a few people get a little carried away. i know most of you guys are gonna say to leave the group if it bugs you, and maybe I should. Well just an idea.

I agree with Turok. Group messages are a good feature for some things, but are too easily used for spam, especially in public groups. Maybe keep the feature available only to group mods or have an On/Off button?

As in 'ignore all threads' from a specific user, or 'ignore PM's'? Actually, both would be nice, lol. I think the first one would be easier and more realistic though.

Wondering if it is not the same person I had 8 from I am about to just leave group to avoid getting the messages.

Not to name any names but does it begin with a K and end with an atz?

Ya'll have that problem too? :)

I think the ignore feature would be awesome. I like the groups I'm in but these "hi how are you my day is fabulous lets talk" mass messaging everyday is ridiculous! If we can have a stupid tag and status button the least we could get is a much needed ignore feature! :) Just my Ms.Peeon two cents:D

LOL Yeah. I also agree with the leaving the Group PM only to the Group Mods. But also being able to have more than one group mod. but that should be in a different thread.

The only problem I can see with that is groups like the Christian Cops group...a lot of people do a group message seeking prayer requests, and I do not mind that. But it is these stupid ones every single day over dingleberry crap that is worse than spam in my private email (and I have three email accounts!!!). If people cannot learn some self control, well then someone needs to give us the ability to mute what we do not wanna hear! (well, technically read :D )

Maybe they would be good with a Prayer request thread?

I think they already do that, I think they even have a group for it. I think some of the group PMing is to bring attention to a matter. There are other groups where members notify others of something that needs their attention....I do not now about you, but I do not (nor do I have the time) want to go through every thread on every board of every group:) Hence the reason an ignore button would work wonders! There are a few people who do not know self control and the rest of the group should not be punished because of someone else's poor actions. (That make any sense or do I need to reword it?)

that makes sense. However if it is a pressing matter, they could PM the group mod to Group PM it

I do like the idea of an ON / OFF feature. Just like the REJECT feature for the Friend Invite. :-)

Having the option for No Group PMs, All group PMs, or Only Group PMs from the Group Moderator would probably be the best bet.

If I could get the multiple item delete to work, I'd be happy. I hate deleting then individually. Takes forever!

Same here, I do not even read them. I am really just about to exit group to eliminate the problem and since the group is public I can just check in.

This feature is being abused even more lately. I logged on to find a ton of group emails inviting people to other websites, like that police facebook one. Post that shit in the group forum, otherwise its call SPAM!

funny thing is some of the main problems with mass messaging have posted in this thread........ But I agree, I am tired of the mass messaging, especially when a person sent the same message to multiple groups. this should be enough to sanction the member.....
