I have just realised i answered an Email that told me of an alternative forum being constructed and that I think that's why my ability to receive mail has been obstructed. I would be grateful if our esteemed mods could tell me if this is correct. It may lead me to reconsider my place here. I have noticed hardly any from the old forum remain...Robert was that your intention just to swallow and dissolve other forums?

PMs are blocked for all users beyond a certain date because we don't feel like spending a lot of time policing the spam from some members who have been very abusive with this community.

@xris,
From the rest of the post referenced above:

Robert Gentel wrote:
Sure, I know you may not like that but this is a free service and I've already lost enough sleep and time with the spam, the crude limit will be in place until those efforts cease and I'm sorry that it inconveniences others.

At some point I'm going to sit down and tweak that to be less crude but like I said, this is a free site and it gets by with what resources it has, the spam has taxed those resources and spread us thin so the spam is being stopped by a crude, temporary, restriction. It will probably be modified sometime this month to something more nuanced.

So:

Yes, PM privileges will be restored, but there is no guarantee when it will happen.

PM privileges were revoked for all new users due to the actions of a handful of users who abused the privilege.

@xris,
I haven't said that you're one of the offenders. I've said you're someone caught in the net designed to block the offenders.

@xris,
I'm trying to be patient and answer your questions, but frankly that kind of question just makes you sound, shall we say, "less than rational" or perhaps "sillier than a barrel full of geese."

Region posted a link to an explanation. Go read it.

@DrewDad,
With your perspective a barrel full of geese would sound like madam butterfly. You are not answering my questions you are making excuses for what appears a fit of anxiety followed by a childish tantrum.

Come now Robert explain yourself, this thread has been open long enough for you to respond. Do you realise you have lost possibly two thirds or even more from the philo forum. Time to admit your reasoning was ill founded. You caused me to loose many long term friends , do you care?

@djjd62,
I know the reasoning , I just oppose the action that has been taken. No communication , no argument., do debate..very philosophical.
