Default Any way to block pm's from a user?

Yesterday I received a PM from a forum member with sexually explicit material and I want to block him from sending me any more PMs. I didn't see any spam or report buttons in the private message box and so I wonder if it is even possible to block a user from sending PM's? I know there is an ignore function but I'm pretty sure this only deals with not seeing a user's threads in the forums. Thanks.

It was a troll and he got banned. Everyone got that PM.

And don't act like you didn't enjoy the material, this is a miata site after all.

I think it was everyone that was on at the time. He just went down the list of "users online"

When Pusha dreams at night, that's what he sees.

I didn't get the PM either, but I did get like 9 thread updates in the build-section with him just saying "nice build" or something else useless.

Is that why I have a notification saying I have a new PM but when I go to my inbox, there are no unread messages?

Any way to clear that notification?
