Can I just check that under the forum rules that when people read your post they are allowed to private message you offering their services for a fee?
Basically i put something about my taxes on a post and have received a private message touting for business.
After years of debt and living on the breadline feeling nothing but negative about myself, I am finally feeling that 2019 might be the year I actually get positive about it!

    Against forum rules to tout for business. You have the option of reporting them if you wish to do so.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    In general PM's should be treated with care, but if they are touting for business just report them.

    Why not have the ability to turn PMs off like most forums do ?
