>If they were to introduce a PM system, the only request I would have is to be able to block people from messaging you. That way any trolls can be expunged.
The old board had a PM system if you chose to you could block anyone.
Unfortunately, that doesn't help block trolls. They'll just keep coming back over and over and over again with new accounts.
That is a board issue not a member issue

I'd like to think that most of us in this thread have been pretty respectful in asking for/about a PM function. I have seen a few of those opposed to a PM be respectful, also. Sadly, there are always going to be those ( on both sides ) that tend to be snarky and that tend to act like the only valid opinion is theirs and only theirs and anyone who has the audacity to disagree with them need to be reported as baiting or some other such nonsense. I did not start this thread/topic as a badgering thread/topic. I simply started it to bring it to Admins attention that I have seen the majority of the members here seem to be in agreement with and want a PM function. No more, no less. I do agree with Brian_Brau in that it would be nice if Admin would at least post an acknowledgment that they have seen this and would post one of these: 1 ) We have seen it and will not add a PM function 2 ) We have seen it and are in the process of adding a PM function 3 ) We have seen it and are discussing it amongst ourselves 4 ) We have seen it and will see what the majority of the members want 5 ) We have seen it 6 ) We have seen it and will make an announcement at a later date Any one of those would at least be something from Admin. And let me apologize, Father_J, for anyone that may have hurt your feelings on this. It most certainly was not my intention when I started this thread/topic that anyone's feelings be hurt.
Do you believe that all of you would just drop it if admin were to acknowledge and just come out and say they've decided not to allow PMs and won't in the foreseeable future? I don't think so. Once admin did that, people would start another thread demanding an explanation of why admins don't want PMs. If they got that, then more threads would get started of people trying to convince admin that their explanation is not good enough, and would possibly propose a test trial with PMs or some other idea....then get angry that admin isn't responding to those ideas.
I cannot and will not speak for the other members here, but if Admin came into the thread and would let us know 'something' then I would be happy. While I might ask for clarification on something, I would not go on and on and on and on and on with questions. It would be nice if Admin would communicate with us once in a while, though. I am not, nor have I ever, asking for them to become buddy/buddy with us, but if they would at least get to know us and our posting styles. Sorry for getting a bit off topic there. Back on topic, I still think a PM function would be nice.


That is a fair and admirable approach. Perhaps I'm more of a pessimist because I don't believe most of the people here would be able to refrain as much as you.

I try to follow the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would want them to treat you. I really do try to treat others in a nice way. That's why I usually won't reply right away to a post, unless it's a basic reply. I've learned that early on, way back in '98 and '99, when I first got online.

I've had some pretty neat discussions because of my rule, but I've also had to deal with some pretty nasty individuals at times, too. Anyhoo, I hope I at least answered some of your question(s). At least concerning my POV and take on this ^_^

yeah, the E isn't really in a spot. It's just there showing that it belongs in that word somewhere.

Can I have an 'A'

So, that's a very definite "maybe", then?

Have to wonder about the reluctance to set one up.
