We removed the private message option a few months ago for two reasons.
First, some members were getting PM's that pressured them to give less information. We didn't feel good about that.
Second, a member threatened me with slander and buisness lible. Of course he was removed.
This board has three words that set the tone for all of us. Information, friendship and fly fishing. And this is a friendly board with a lot of good information thanks to guys like you.
