    I just received an unsolicitated PM from one of the good guys. Nothing much just a comment on my "character". Kinda warm and fuzzy. I was asked not to send a PM as a reply.

    So I will comply with request.

    However, given bigboab's PM experience I thought I would start a thread about constructive PM's.

    Ever had one?

    Dunno if this counts but I have some pretty cool things said to me as part of pm&#39;s , never an out of blue &#39;you&#39;re a top guy &#39; one though, so credit where credit is due Mr Can . I think iI know what probably instigated it and I thought it was nice work, in a place where genuine quality posts are very few and far between

    I have sent a few, I have received a few.

    The honest nature of the exchange has been quite inspiring to me. It is so easy to flame by PM that the merit/ legitimacy of such a gesture is questionable.

    Sometimes people who tend to agree on a particular matter PM each other in an exchange of mutual masturbation.

    People who may agree or disagree or a particular subject, but still recognize the contribution of the other, and still exchange complimentary PM&#39;s are the most sincere, and therefore, most honest and appreciated.

    I refrain from PMing people because it may impose a burden upon the recipient to reply. Although I love the community, everyone has their sense of personal distance and I do not wish to encroach upon that.

    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    @(<Zero Cool>) ...sure count whatever you want.

    I don&#39;t know about any credit though.

    I would like to add that the feeling expressed in the PM is mutual.

    Funny thing is I half expected a comment of some sort from the sender of the PM because of a little aside I made concerning him/her. I just figured that "tell one person and soon you&#39;ve told the whole world". I expected a little flame and instead got "an atta boy", way cool.

    btw (<Zero Cool>) thanks for noticing the old man is back in his can.

    @hobbes ...quite so. Saw your post as I was previewing mine.

    Glad to see it myself, OMC.

    You sojourn too often.

    Ironic (to me, anyway) that PMs never seem to reflect any animus or disagreement shown in open forum.

    It would seem, at first blush, PMs would be more a source of irritation than they are.

    I have found I look forward to them, and can honestly only recall one that was irksome, but even that was reconciled amicably.

    I guess the more I talk about it, the more astonishing this dynamic becomes.

    Hobbes-

    Did you receive my reply PM?

    Don&#39;t tell if you don&#39;t want.
