any chance of getting an option NOT to accept PMs from those who have their PMs blocked?

i dont mind the occasional 'shot across the bow' as it is all part of a forum discussion, but when it comes from someone who has their own PMs blocked it is a bit of a pisser.... Unsure

Wouldn't work: when someone wants to send you a pm they could just temporarily unblock theirs.... You'd need a time limit on blocking again then too.

sure it would.. simply add a counter so that you HAVE to receive one PM from every person you send one too... allows two way communication that can be terminated by the 'initiator' simply by not responding to their response...

either that or do not allow those who have blocked PMs to send PMs...

one way communication sucks... Unsure

Or, maybe just delete the PM w/o opening it?

Maybe I'm confused, but if the PM from the person is automatically deleted, you're still not going to know if it is a normal conversation or a flame, are you?

i'm not asking for automatic deletion.. that wouldnt solve anything.

I'm asking for an inclusion of a 'reply' function EVEN to those people who have selected to "block PMs". If you chose not to receive PMs at all, that is fine. However if you send one there should be an avenue by which the person you contacted is able to reply (once per PM would work) regardless of your PM settings, as you initiated the conversation..

the current implementation allows people to 'hide' behind the blocked PM function and yet send them out themselves...Unsure
