I don't want to receive challenges from this site; a friend challenged me to a game that was fine. But during the game I was challenged by several other players none of whom I knew or was remotely interested in. The challenge page said I could decline these challenge from the "My Games" page; sadly I could find no obvious way to decline them, so I ...[text shortened]... y I wish to ensure that I receive no further communication from this site. How do I do this?
You can decline the games by clicking on the trash can icon--only available for the first few moves.
Better yet, if you go to "My Settings" and set "maximum games" = 0, and then "check" the "buddy privileges enabled" then only the people you add to your buddy list will be able to challenge you. You can add your friend(s) to your buddy list under "My Home", "My Buddies", "Add People to my Buddy List".
I'm not sure about the adverts--I think some browsers can block them. I blocked them by subscribing.
