Barbara,

We have some controls in place to make it difficult for a spammer to send bulk messages to Geni users who are outside their privacy circle, however we wouldn't be able to stop someone from sending a small number of messages, or just one, to another Geni user -- if we did that, it'd be impossible for two Geni users to connect with each other at all. Rest assured that our customer service team will deal with this person, and that he/she cannot use Geni to access your private information, such as your email address.

Thanks Ofir...not only are people getting spammed, but their collaborators or followers are having to see post after post of this nonsense.
