    So I often get random PSN strangers messaging me saying "hi" or "whats up?"

    I be nice and respond in kind and nearly every time I get this question soon after:

    "So how old are you?"


    I'm like yeeeeah and then I stop responding because I'm not giving my age out like that. Anyone else get this?

    Yeah I think there is some bots on the PS messaging. I would suggest turning off messages from people who aren't friends.

    This happened a few days ago but I don't think it was a bot because when I said bye, she was like "don't have to be so rude". Apparently she was 22 and a female

    Don't worry I knew. When I said bye, it was like a "I'm not continuing this, bye" type of bye :D

    I know this is a little old by now, but I've gotten like 6 or 7 of these messages from different accounts. A friend of mine told me he'd gotten about two as well. They say exactly the same thing, so I think it might be bots or something.

    Maybe they want to collect personal information or something like that

    I've been getting spam messages for about a half year now. It's frustrating having to manually block each one.

    You should be able to set it so that only people who your friend can message you, much like you can on steam.

    Yes I know, I've gone through all the privacy settings and set them to my liking. I want that set to everyone for reasons.
