How can I send a Private Message to a user? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I don't this option by any user's posts, or on the user's profile page.

    Or, maybe I can't send Private Messages? :-(

  • Hi Vincenzo. 

    I was an user in Technet and I wanted to erase all my activity. I was able to do it, changing my name and all the messages I wrote (in the pursuit of erasing my internet footprint), however another user, replying to one of my posts, added the default line "user xxxx wrote the following", so now everything is erased except this little reference.

    Since I cannot private message that user (which seems to be still active in the forum) how can I ask for the erasure ?

    Thanks
