    How many PMs have you received in the last thirty days? On average, how many do you receive per month? How many have you received in all? (Unless, of course, you've exceeded your inbox capacity several times and done so many mass deletes that you can't tell any more.)

    I'm not trying to be creepy, I promise; this is purely idle curiosity.

    Last 30 days: 99 PMs
    Per month (over the last ten months): 91 PMs
    My inbox currently contains: 6490 PMs (that's about 4.5 years worth of inbox messages)

    Note that a healthy portion of those are mod-related -- people writing me about an issue.

    Private Messages are not transparent and accountable. So I don't use Private Messages, rather I post in the Public Forums in the interests of accountability and transparency.

    I made this decision when a member libelled me by simply inventing a private message sent to them. So it became clear that Private Messages are subject to abuse by those of ill intent.

    And I think members should be warned, as they may have been lured here by the promise that MBTI brings understanding and harmony, when in fact it seems to release a deep vein of nastiness.

    Warning noted, Victor.

    Those among you who are not as prudent, keep the responses coming please?

    Haven't been around much for the month of October but for the month of September 72 inbox PMs spread over 16 distinct members. As far as monthly averages, too lazy and impossible to calc since I've deleted a good chunk of them.
