Private Messaging

    General discussion

  • I ocassionaly encounter situations where I'd like to drop a message to another forum member privately, many forums have this but not not the MSDN one it seems.

    Users could opt in or out at anytime and could permanently bar contacts from any other user if they felt they were being spammed.

    I know I have seen the odd post in which I would be able to help but do not want to disclose proprietary information publicly, but am willing to do so privately as a way of assisting someone.

    Another example is that a person at Microsoft, pursuing a nasty suspected bug recently, had no option but to put their actual e-mail address in their post in order to get direct contact with volunteer testers.

    Private message capability would certainly be a help in such situiations, can this be considered as an upgrade?

    Thanks
    Hugh
