If you have ladies for rent, all over the country, you get more PM's.
I'm just guessing of course ;-)

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

I did as well and without violating any rules, it was about Craps.

I think too much thought is going into this.

A PM is a personal message - the privacy of that message begins with the sender. The sender takes a risk in sending that information, not knowing if that privacy will extend beyond his message. Just the same thing if I tell a friend a secret, or send him a regular e-mail. He may share it or not, as he sees fit. Once I let those words go, it's no longer in my control.

However, the Wizard likely has a reason for the policy. Simply abide by it or refuse to read PM's.

Why isn't there a search feature for PMs? It's very annoying.

It's also annoying when someone sends you a PM but when you reply there PM is shut off.

I can't think of a reason to turn off PMs. If somome is bothering you Just ignore them. I haven't had to many spam PM's just a few seems like less than 10.

Maybe he is looking for craps advice from the left and the right.

I would guess he doesn't like the public beating some craps posts get and is trying to avoid it.

If you feel you're being spammed or solicited, I'd appreciate a forwarding of the offending PM'er. The forum is not for them. If it's not offensive, I would suggest ignoring it, or if you don't want to hear from someone, you can block them in their profile; I believe that keeps them from being able to PM you. (Can't say from personal experience.)
