I do have to admit that I have belonged to many forums and this is the only one with pm problems. Do you know of any other forums that do not allow pm's or have problems with their's?
People are very smart and if they want to still members I can think of many ways to do that but the members would have to want to go. suggetions are only placebos that do not always work.
I wish that they would fix it because I would like to pm a few people about personal info.
