On a number of occasions advice has been posted that approaches made via private email or private message may be regarded as requests to engage professional services.

Could this advice be reiterated in the Contact frame of the profile viewer?

I believe this is where most who undertake these approaches find the email address, so it would be a good place to post the warning.

We're not trying to discourage such approaches, only from those who are after even more freebies than this site already provides.

Do you really think they will go away Ray Rolling Eyes Question
If so I second your request Smile,
Though I think your in for a big dissapointment Sad

People need to realize that those questions are helpfull for other members, thus they belong in the forums and not in their's and your's private message mailboxes.

I guess it's one of those things the #1 of the top 10 has to endure Evil or Very Mad

I think we might be better off announcing that such messages should be ignored all together.

Idea Perhaps we can penalize repeated offenders and revoke their send message privilages Question

There are few "repeat offenders". I have a standard response, with a copy to admin@dsxchange.com, after which some apologize for stepping over the line. On two occasions my professional services have actually been engaged.
