Why are private messages disabled?

Post by Hatamoto » Mon Oct 03, 2005 2:33 am

I'm sorry if this has been done before, but I'm new here, and I was just wondering how come the PM system is disabled? There are some really cool people on here that I'd like to get to know, but I don't wanna make threads asking them stuff coz 1) I don't wanna clutter the board, 2) it's spam really, and 3) I don't really wanna make stuff that public when I'm trying to get to know somebody.

Was it abused in the past or is it a matter of baord space, and etc? I won't bug anybody to enable it I just wanted to know, coz it's in theory a good idea, yknow? lol.

unfortunatly the PM's did get abused rather badly, so they had to be disabled. The attention thread was created because of this.
Only thing i can suggest hon is to grab peep's MSN addy, or email them. (H)

I believe people were using it to trade URL's in the past of other retailers. Therefor, BAI BAI PM'S!

Makes sense, really.
