Is there a way to remove a PM without opening it?

Is there a way to remove a PM without opening it?

I have received a PM, "XEvil 6: The best program for captchas solving is available", from a LolitaKab.

I don't know any LolitaKab, and I have not seen her(?) here at Starship Asterisk*. I'm not asking for whatever she(?) might be offering me, and I can't shake the suspicion that her(?) PM to me might contain something that might infect my computer.

Is there a way for me to remove that PM without opening it?

Good question. We probably need to remove all of LolitaKab's PMs. They have been reported by at least two others.

BTW, Ann, her account has been disabled.

I think you can safely open the PM to remove it. Just don't follow any links.

Perhaps you can do what bystander advised me to do: Open the PM, because when you have opened it, you can remove it. Just don't click on any links.

But to be on the safe side, ask bystander if it is okay to open the PM at all.
