Why is it that people disable PMs when they send a PM?

Postby skirtingtoday » Sun Apr 03, 2016 7:33 pm

I have just received a PM from a member here and when I tried to send him a reply, it was confirmed that the recipient has disabled such replies.

Do'H!!!

Why do people do that and should I block them for sending me PM's in the first place? I really do welcome PM chat but its hardly beneficial it the chat is one way surely?

(The PM sender BTW was Gregg1100 (It was sent on April 1st - not a very good joke in my opinion)

I suppose it depends if the PM was statement or a question. :)

Ross,

You could send him an email through this site and see if he responds to that. Given that he PM'd you, I suspect it is simply an oversight on his part.

Have fun,


Ian.

Can't do that as there is no e-mail address listed on his profile either!

(Hope he doesn't think it rude of me not replying to him - it's just not possible, unfortunately)
