Before when we had trolls trolling we didn't know WTH was going on.<quoted text>
Yes, PM's have opened a brave new world on topix.
It's the median~~don't have to risk giving out an
email address to "talk" privately.
On the other hand, look out when you have a falling out.
Topix loves the pm's because they can snoop.
Topix loves the fighting it causes on the forums~
Even Topix doesn't defend themselves when they're
called a shoddy bunch...
Now, we can have their 'friends' slip us little notes about who the troll might be and why they think a friend of a friend who is our friend is trolling Lmbo.
The PM can be good for clearing up misunderstandings though...
Try to do that on the board and watch 20 people jump in stir up the pot.
I saw someone post that they were banned over something they wrote in a PM.
There is no such thing as a private message on Topix.
