Over the years, some members have become abusive in the open public forum, which will be dealt with by established ES moderation policies. However, the power to block Personal Messages (PM's) remains with the individual user, who then retains the ability to un-block, and possibly even re-block that user as they wish.
The process here may be confusing to someone who is new to ES, so I will attempt to make this guide as easy to follow as possible. You may delete PMs before opening, but some members have requested for PM's from Foes to be automatically deleted.
1. Open the home page of endless-sphere in a second tab, so you can read this guide, and also take action on your "User Control Panel" by easily switching back and forth.
2. You must designate the abusive member as a "Foe"
3. You must designate PMs from foes to be deleted automatically.
Step One: Open ES in a second tab, and click on User Control Panel
Step Two: click on Friends/Foes, click on Manage Foes, Copy/Paste the EXACT username
The clipped text reads: "Foes are users which will be ignored by default. Posts by these users will not be fully visible. Personal messages from foes are still permitted. Please note that you cannot ignore moderators or administrators."
Step Three: Designate PM's from foes to be automatically deleted
Click on Private Messages, click on Rules Folders and Settings, click on down arrow for more options
Click on "sender", click on "next"
Click down arrow for more options, click "is foe", click "next"
Click down arrow for more options, click "Delete message", click "add rule"
Here is the resulting "successful change" message, and also the button to reverse the blocking.
