I couldn’t decide whether this belonged here or in IMHO. Since it is a question About This Message Board I chose this forum.
I like the fact that we have the PM option and that many users make their e-mail available in their profile but I have been hesitant to take advantage of this option. I have PM’ed people three times, but I felt weird doing it. I know I do not mind receiving messages from people but I wonder if others consider it an invasion of privacy. I would never consider “flaming” or hostile private communication appropriate; if you want to do that I think it should be on the “Boards”, but what about friendly or innocuous things?
