Blocking messages or account to unpaid

I never post on the forum although I find it useful from time to time and I'm not sure if this subject affects anyone else,

I was wondering if there's a way to show on your account or block messages to stop unpaid work private messages .I do and have worked unpaid before when I apply for it. However I get messages maybe four times a week from students that offer me unpaid work which usually consists of university films that mean even if I took the job for free I would have to end up loosing money through travel.

I more than understand that people including myself are always looking for showreel material but when I haven't applied for the unpaid position it is becoming a nuisance keep opening unpaid messages.

I can't imagine me messaging a plumber for some unpaid unblocking of my sink would go down well either.

Does anyone else share this problem or know how to do anything on their settings to stop this

I have a note on my profile that says I don't work for no or low pay. Some students obviously don't read that bit!

The short answer to both of you is 'No'. You're quite right, but 'No' I look at these request positively as allowing me to practice gracious declining.
