Not speaking for forum admin but there were pm's in the dim and dismal past but the view was they were abused.

A) By clandestinely advertising other forums and personal products.
B) Abusive messages and veiled threats being sent. I believe a female member of the forum was "stalked" tho' that may not have been just personal messaging.

So it was stopped.

can admin not simply monitor pms (like the other forum)   and as soon as somebody abuses it, they get a warning,  then if they do it again, they are off????

They're not private then. It's an atrocious suggestion to be honest.

if people just filled in their profiles then there would be no need for a PM Function as you could just email them. Or if members used their real names then contacting them would be easy.

You can't have it both ways, either fill in your profile and list your website or accept there is no private message facility
