I know I have to answer a message when it’s from someone I’ve never gotten a message from, even if they just say hi, but at what point should I just ignore them?
Recently, possibly from this forum, I have gotten a lot of people messaging me with a lot of
ongoing questions which are not ones that indicate they seriously want to order. It is just
daily ongoing messages such as hi, what do you do here, I need (x y z) done can you do that?
and when I say no, the next question is “then what do you do here?”
I have a hard time just refusing to answer people but is it justified in these cases?
Should I just not answer? It seems to encourage more and more of the same type of
pointless and never ending messages if I answer.
Suggestions for a scripted response that is polite but firm are welcome.
