    Private mail in Lounge

    My profile explicitly states that I will not accept Private mail, i.e., the mail mechanism in the forum.

    Well, that does not seem to be working as somebody managed to send one to me anyway. I deleted the message without reading so I hope that it was not a hot stock tip!

    So, what's wrong with a tip that you should buy Enron, Worldcom or Xerox stocks? <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    And if you like those I have a bridge in New York that may interest you ...

    Howard,
    It could be that the mods and Admin people can send PM, so they can make contact without explaining to the world where one may not followed the rules of the lounge.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Perhaps, but since I set up my Profile to inform others that I will not accept Private Mail, I will not read any such Private Mail. Anyone wishing to contact me will have to use regular email.

    Never mind Howard, it wasn't important anyway. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Re: Private mail in Lounge

    Just strictly for curiosity's sake, why *would* you disable private messages? If someone's going to contact you, it seems that it wouldn't make a difference whether it used the Lounge system or standard email. Just curious - I use PMs in the Lounge because I have my spam filters set to "overkill" but when I get a message in the Lounge, I get a notification from LoungeAdmin@WOPR.com - and I can then read it at my convenience, without it getting lost in transit or filtered off.
