How to blacklist steamgroups? (getting spammed)

Every time i turn on my computer and steam launches i get a steam group event invite for TF2 tournaments.

I am not a member of the group nor do i have any idea who they are, but apparently they love sending the same invite every time i log in.

So i want to stop reciving the invites, how do i blacklist a steamgroup?

The only real effective way is to make your profile private

You can also report violations on the groups page as well.

There should be a option to automatically block group invites that aren't from friends.

Was reported and recommended the solution (1 post earlier) countless times. I guess Valve Staff are not getting these spams every time they fire up their Steam so they don't believe this - that's why they don't fix it.

Once you decline an invite from a group, you won't receive further invites from the group.

Is there a way to receive further invites from a group I am apart of if I decline once?

No, there isn't. If you want to join the group, go to the group page and click the join link.

Valve staff are barely in many groups at all.

I want it GONE. This stupid stuff always makes my games minimize. I am in abotu 40 groups, and there's 3 out of all of them constantly spamming , yet I play on theyr server and such. Its really annoying.

Valve, There are adults here. We threat this as spam. Not a newsletter I may get from moddb and such.

this.

I do not want invites to join any groups, at all. I dont get invited that often, but its annoying nonetheless.

I would also like the option to block all friend requests, as well. If I want to add someone, I will shut it off for them, then put it back on. but it gets annoying getting friend requests from people I dont know.
