Ah , sorry . I had a look around on the messege section, and I personaly cannot find anything that might allow you to personaly opt out.
Again, I find it hard to figure why you would want to opt out. I often find the PM facility to be handy, although I can understand that recieving messeges almost exclusively from ATS street veiw can be annoying. The other reason that the PM system is handy, is that it allows users to be updated about changes to the site, missives from the owners or staff, and sometimes these things just need to be sent out for the benifit of all. Opting out of that, would probably be akin to opting out of recieving updates on alterations to the taxation system, ignorance of which can land a person in problems with the revenue service. In the same way, opting out of PMs would prevent you recieving updates on issues like terms and conditions, current attitudes towards user conduct, and so on and so forth.
Again, its like a minuites work to clear an inbox, and for all that you would miss out on, I just cant see the appeal of cutting yourself off from what I always felt was a pretty important tool here on ATS.
