E-mail Reply Requests-Please Don't!!!
Please do not ask for e-mail replies to posts. You are unlikely to get them

Firstly it is useful for others to see the replies.

Secondly it is a rule of the forums that personal information including your own be not given out. That includes e-mail addresses.

If you want E-mail notification that you have a reply to your post in the forums, ensure that the e-mail Notification box below the message window is checked.

What are you talking about Hobo? Are people asking you for your e-mail or something?:confused:

I have seen 3 or posts recently with people asking for replies to be sent by E-mail A few newbies will read them and think they can ask for personal replies too and before long the forums will be running a personal answering service. Just trying to nip this thing in the bud.

And if answers start getting sent by e-mail the answerers e-mails addresses will be out there and we certainly don't want that.

All the best for now.

Very good point Only A Hobo,

I would also add another to the reasons you have given, is that every spam collecting company out there will have it also, and the guests or members e-mail will be flooded with more spam (junk) e-mail than they want.

Of course I might be wrong:rolleyes:

It's very understandable not to give out your e-mail. With my luck, I would probably have some lunatic constantly e-mailing me crap! Not to mention the LimeWire Forum would probably end up turning into one of the other message boards that I went on to and believe me, no one would want that!!

I have weird newbies PM-ing me "Help Me", "I want to be your friend" and other nonsense like that, I just delete them.

And there is no way I would give out my email to a wierdo newbie.

Do you have something against private messaging? I have sent private messages to others. Does that make me a 'weirdo' too?

Only A Hobo August 19th, 2005 07:32 AM

Of course not ... just keep that darn plant away from me :)

Spot on Hobo (biting plants:confused::()


You have misread, or misunderstood, my post e.g. would you PM someone that PM'd you with "I want to be your friend"?

Good point, UK Bob.

Maybe my sense of humor is a little dry(don't answer back!:D) but it sounds kinda funny! It sounds like something a kid in grade school would say.
