Sharon, I sent you a "Test" PM in order to see how and when the board's "Who's Online" page reported my doing so.

I don't envy you the task of monitoring what this board has become, TL.
 

I agree!

I agree...

  I certainly object.Recently I have been blitzed with unsolicited materials;however,I am also corresponding with thoughtful and intelligent viewers.I simply strike the former.

   Yes,TL,I do not envy you your job lately.Thanks for your efforts.

   I wish you could get the spelling corrector back up.

No one is required to send or receive messages. PMs help keep off-topic banter off the board

FTR, I didn't forward any PM's and I didn't report any PM's.

Every PM ever sent to me has remained private.

yes, PB absolutely did lobby to do away with the PM feature...it should be a very simple thing...if one does not appreciate the PM function, one should simply not use it...it is no big deal to delete any unwanted PMs...consider them all spam and just click them away...but don't take it away from everyone else...

   No further modification is necessary.TL has not given any listed of banned members that I have seen.

Good choice, Ma!

PM's don't intrude on anyone's privacy. If they don't know by now, posters need to be aware of security issues and learn enough to keep themselves safe.

While it's easy for a new user to trust a site, they need to learn that no site is going to keep them safe. That is a personal responsibility issue.

Leading them into a false sense of security by telling them you are turning off PM's is not doing them a service.

And, as imho said, it helps keep the chit chat under control. When pb erroneously sent a pm to Nuke Scientist instead of me, just think of all the bandwidth it would have used up to have Nuke post it publicly instead of PMing to 'his' posse.

Have you reached a decision about the sitemeter, TL?

Jeez, it's her site.  She knows where you all stand.  She doesn't owe anyone answer or explanation.

The only problem I can see with the sitemeter, something that never occurred to me before Tony posted it,  is that someone spiteful could report an IP to the OWNER of the IP for possible unauthorized use of the interent.  If you are not doing that, there is no problem.   Should TL change her policy to protect those type of people?
