A personal message about personal messages.
« on: July 09, 2015, 01:36:50 pm »
so, here's the deal.
when someone sends you a PM the forum sends you an email telling you that you have a personal message.
it also tells you not to reply to the email.
the reason it tells you that is because if you hit reply, the email doesn't go to the person you intended. it goes an email alias that forwards to me.

The next time you get a PM notification email, look at the from address to see what I'm talking about.

This means:

The person you are replying to does not get your message. (and from their perspective you didn't reply)
so, they don't know you want to buy that prize farkle they're selling, or worse yet, they don't know how to send you money for the one you're selling

so, please don't hit reply to that email, log on to the forum and send your reply from it.

I think it's kinda kinky you're reading my mail.  What if I like it?  I mean... hypothetically speaking, of course.   ;D
