Posted by diegoeskryptic [send private reply] at July 03, 2002, 10:06:00 PM What is the purpose of sending a private REPLY?.... when I suggested an instant messaging system... some of u guys called it lame and dumb... i dont see the purpose in Privat PM's....

Say you wan't to send someone a porno link, now these kinds of things are forbidden on the message boards, but PM'ing it is no problem (well thats one example LOL)
Posted by Psion [send private reply] at July 04, 2002, 07:52:42 AM Web sites served the way this one is don't have persistent connections, so it would be all smoke and mirrors if I could make it look like messages are really delivered "instantly" unless someone ran some separate software, which is what ICQ and AIM are for. Thus, we'd might as well have ways to use them that only make sense given that they are delivered just like regular forum messages.
YOU may not have asked for them to be used this way, but others have.
