    How safe is it to give out your PIN to the forums? I want to be a social berry but don't want to be swamped by crazy people.

    Is it easy to block or remove people from sending you messages?

    Give me your PIN and see. Just kidding.
    I have been very selective on who I give my PIN to. Once they have it they can keep sending you a request even after you delete them. You don't have to accept but it could get annoying.

    There isn't really a "safety" factor involved. You can add and delete people as you please. If you encounter a nut who wants to send you pictures of his wee-wee, just delete him.

    I'm running OS 5 with BBM5 and when I delete someone it gives me the option to "ignore future requests".

    It's safer than going to a bar.

    I tend to add people in good faith, they turn out to be freaks or just give one word answers ( which really winds me up) so I just delete them.

    yes, you can block unwanted PIN messages. depending on the OS version that you are running the precise path might be a little different but on 5.0.0.230/.238 it is Options>Security Options>Firewall>enable, select PIN and scroll down to "except messages from" and select whichever option you want, but it'll be less work to choose "contacts" here... don't worry, it's just your PIN for your device, it isn't an MEID or ESN or your checking account number!
