I want to turn off / take away the Private Messages section (the one down in the left corner) of the home page (see attached picture). How do I do that? Just think that they are a distraction and that they make the Home page more cluttered.

What do your users think though?
Some agree with me, others don't. But you should be able to choose for your self anyway.

I agree that panel is distracting and ideally could be minimized so as to reduce the visual cluter.
