But if you make the insult in private, you can apply leverage and bully the recipient into staying silent because revealing the contents of the PM is grounds for suspension.


Yeah ... I don't think so. Just check what color is Nareed's nick ;)

I may or may not have just sent you a very
insulting PM, like I usually do, but you can't
confirm or deny it because its against the rules.

As reported a few minutes ago, apparently sending an insult by PM is punishable by suspension.

Has anybody gotten any private messages today from a new member that has never posted anything?
Kind of weird
guerilla advertising?

I turned off my private messages ages ago when beethoven9th messaged me once whining about something I said about him, then blocked me from responding.

Life has been much better since then. If someone has something to say to me, they can say it out in the open.

Why do people do that? I had the same thing happen with a member I had some conflict with a long time ago. The conflict wasn't huge, but the person tried to turn it in to much more than it was...then blocked me from responding. I haven't turned PM's off; I don't get many, which is fine with me...
