Why do we use the Private Message (PM) ?

There are only few times I uses  PM , it is for information reasons to ask something i don't understand on forum to another member; or to remind another member i made a reply to him/her; or to send some links, to clarify something for discussion, etc. All are in a friendly way.

I was shocked to got a forwarded PM from somebody else in this forum. Pointing people, blaming people, criticizing people, showing her/himself as a victim. From another side, he/she is trying to show how good he/she is .

I found that it is insane who acting like that, talking behind people's back, looking for sth who knows what is that.

Do you look for supports by PMs ?

Nope.

Occasionally I've received PMs from people who want to chat, but that's about it.  At the same time, I know that there is always drama lurking behind the scenes at just about every message board on the Internet.

Initial contact by PM with someone is fine. If you feel that you have something in common then exchange QQ or MSN if you have that. But the initial has to be through PM

Who exactly has sent you all the harassing PMs?
We are all prisoners of our own device.
