I sell books. I do not do special offers, as they never pay. I do not want requests, I do not want special jobs, I will not work for $3.60 an hour. And yet, even though I get consistent five-star reviews, I am constantly demoted to level zero because I do not have all day to sit here and answer spam messages that often say nothing but hello or thank you. If I reply to them, then they say another two word thing, and then I have to reply, and it keeps going for days. I want to turn this feature off. Frankly, it is not a feature.

Enjoy the forum.
Just type “hi” and move on. It doesn’t take that long and once you answer you can stop. You can ignore them after that.
You have 24 hours to answer a message before it affects your stats. Therefore, you should only need to check your messages every 23.75 hours and your stats will not be impacted.
You only have to reply to the first message in a conversation, anything after will not mess with your stats.
reply to spammer with a simple “hello” and then send it to jail with the report button
