TRUE opt-out of virtual gifts

TRUE opt-out of virtual gifts

Short, concise description of the idea
The ability should be included to completely opt-out of recieving all virtual gifts, not just delete ones that have already been received.

Full description of the idea
There is potential for the virtual gifts concept to be abused by people who will actually *pay* to have inappropriate language placed in a userinfo page. The way the current setup for virtual gifts is implemented, the gift would show up on the userinfo page, and the owner would have to delete the gift to resolve the issue. This is not great. There needs to be a way to opt-out of receiving these "virtual gifts" entirely.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Increased security through the reduction in abuse potential

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Reduce potential money LiveJournal would receive from virtual gifts

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Ideally, I'd like to see a section in the editinfo page to opt-out of both virtual gifts and nudge.
  • Barring that, a console command like the nudge disable could be implemented.
