Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have been messaged twice now by a company that is looking for somebody that's an "expert with five years experience" in something that I clearly don't do.

They haven't even spent 5 mins reading my CV. Rather than declining them repeatedly can I just block them somehow?

Wow, that's gotta be frustrating. But don't you risk losing the legitimate messages? What if one of those messages is the perfect job you've been looking for all your life? :P – Robert Harvey Jun 20 '11 at 20:41
Getting job roles, any kind, with any skill, anywhere spammed to me on mass is happening already I don't need stack exchange for that. – daf Jun 21 '11 at 9:00

Sorry to hear that. You can block employers by selecting "not interested", indicating the reason, and checking the "block employer" check box. If you want you can also send an email to to let us know what company was contacting you.
