>The reason we the members NEED a P.M.S. is because everyone is entitled to privacy. That's all that matters. To deny one his/her own privacy is almost like denying one of their most essential human rights. So in short the rights of the people that post here is what needs to be addressed. If I wanted to live in a dictatorship I could go back in time to NAZI Germany.
But Vice, as I had said before, the p.m.'s on the old startrek.com boards were NOT KEPT PRIVATE by some long time members here. I am concerned for safety, as well as privacy, by NOT WANTING a p.m. system set up at this site.

I understand your reasoning as well. Even I have had some bad encounters using the old P.M. system. It taught me to be more careful when I trust someone with information of a personal nature. It's not the P.M. systems fault for the bad experiences you and other have had. It's the fault of the people using the system.

So why punish everyone for what a few have done wrong?

Again, it's not a very valid point at all: As such a thing can happen with e-mail, IM conversations, and /or private messageboards.
The reason why I stand behind my "no p.m.'s please", is that there are several members still active on this NEW site that had abused the p.m. system on the old boards.  I'm also concerned that the Admin and Mod's may not have the time to moderate a p.m. system at this point in time.


like you. You posted pm's with shadow angel on your nexcal board. Right out in the open where every guest could see. Sorry, with that you lost any credibility on that argument

my point is you have done something you are claiming all those bad people have done to you. Losing all credibility in this argument.

That doesn't really make any sense though. Why would your saftey or privacy be at stake? People will still only have your username and you can block people from sending you messages and can even delete messages without reading them.

What part of the facebook discussion changed your mind? Last I saw, someone had met his wife because of the PM system here. I guess you consider that a bad thing?

I saw it too until it disappeared (deleted, it seems) - it looked like only two people were against private messaegs for startrek.com, member Scoobydog here sounds like one of them that was posting.

It seems the majority speaking want a private message system, has anyone asked the people running the site?

Halo newbie. There were only about half a dozen people participating in that facebook discussion.Hardly representative of the majority of people here (if the number of votes in that big poll can believed - over 100 active participating members).
And out of those 6, 4 were for a PM system while 2 were against it. So even with only 6 people participating in the discussion, 66% are for it, while only 33% are against it. It's interesting how those are also the percentages of people who dislike the new board and who want to see the board fixed. No matter what poll you look at and how many people participate, the results have been the same.
