PM's haven't worked for me for several months now. I have at least 1 PM sitting there that I may never be able to read. I complained about a month ago. I think Bill did several months ago. Nothing ever gets done about it.
Frankly, other than the repository of posts (which are quickly being stripped of their valuable info), I'm not sure why we stick around this place at all. Seriously, there are other platforms and hosts out there that actually work, and admins can be found who actually pay attention to their boards.
