It seems like a lot more often recently after playing a game of L4D2 with some trolls or unsavory people, I get spammed invites to various Steam groups like "LOL U MAD BRO" "DID I MAKE U RAGE" that kind of thing. And it is getting really annoying. So throwing a suggestion out there for a future update to steam, another privacy setting to limit who can invite you to groups.

I'd like it too just so I don't get invited to all these "The #1 Clan fastest growing community on Steam" groups. Group blacklisting would be ideal.

Really? no one else has been having this problem? I know the friend I am usually in games with has been complaining about it too.

Set your profile to be seen only by friends.

I would love this.

I have to admit, in recent months I only got a handful of invites, but I still don't see why I have to suffer even one group invite by a stranger.

I got invites to 26 groups from one person tonight, not kidding... steam lagged real bad, they must have used a script to do it because i got all of them in under a second.

I'm sick and tired of getting random group invites from people i have no association with.

And i'd just report them from their community page if their group was something stupid like "LOL U MAD BRO", maybe even get a few friends in on the action

Bumping this because I'm sick of tired of those spam invites.
Adding an option "Allow only friends to send you group invites" is not rocket science.
Instead of this, they are making that new community social crap.

I would probably just use it to ignore these foreign groups, but it's a good idea non-the-less.
