I never use PM(private message).
I have never sent PM on this forum and
I do not even open it if I receive it because I had some risky experience concerning PMs.

They come close to you with kind words, sweet words to get you or something from you.

If you think you know the sender, you'd better be careful.
You could do without PM.

I've replied to all but one. And I have sent two. Not to someone I know in this forum but to two fellow members in the Russian rating:



They chose not to respond.

But sometimes it is gripping and thrilling to read and send Pms, almo1.

To kill a Deer you need
Guns, swords, knives & many people’s help
&
To kill a Dear you need
Just SILENCE & that’s it!
So always keep in touch with ur Dear 1's.

Dear new members:

I respectfully suggest that you read Almo's comments very carefully.

I agree with them 100%.

There are a few exceptions, but usually there is NO need to send personal messages. (Everything should be suitable to post in open forum.)

A few members use personal messages to start trouble between other members. You should not reply to them. If you want to reply for the sake of courtesy, make it short: "Thank you" is enough.

Remember: In the digital world (as in the real world), there are disturbed individuals from whom one should maintain a healthy distance.

I've used private messages on occasion and pretty much all have been perfectly pleasant.

They can actually be quite a useful medium. After all, the forum rules specifically state that the forum isn't a place for chatting, which is something you can then do via PM.

As usual, Lotje, you get what you give.

There is no harm in seeking and providing advice and guidance on forum topics through PMs. Beautiful and pleasing, but.

Do you also advise people never to read or answer letters? Never to pick up the phone? Never to speak to anyone, as they may say something nasty?

I Have received hundreds of PMs, answered most of them and never had any trouble.
When in doubt - communicate!
