Do not send private messages asking for help

On a regular basis, someone sends me a private message with a question, asking for help. I don't know why this happens, especially since I no longer contribute to this forum.

But it's rude and annoying.

If you have a question, ask it in the correct public forums. DO NOT SEND PRIVATE MESSAGES ASKING FOR HELP. If you do, you will get a quote for professional consulting services, because that's what you're asking about.

Thank you.

(and how do you turn off private messaging?)

----------------------------Yes, I do this for a living.

Re: Do not send private messages asking for help

Hi @bassman59,

I do not think that those who are contacting you will read this post. So yes, you might want to disable PM in your settings:

Preferences > Private Messages > Disable Turn on PM

 I thought people were only contacting Xilinx employees but I guess they are looking for any possible way to get an answers.
