Hi,
If a person does not accept private messages, shouldn't he be disabled from sending private messages ?
I had a situation where somebody sent me a private message and when I tried to reply, he would not accept private messages.
Kinda wacky I think !!!

Don't worry... Jive doesn't have private messaging.

That's something you might want to report to infopop so they can put a "bug fix" in their next upgrade of UBB.

Jive aside, I don't see this as a bug. For example, I don't want to deal with private messages, so I have them disabled. However I have an e-mail address which is publicly available instead. (I just don't want to bother checking both e-mail and private messages.) On the other hand some people (like Shashank) don't provide an e-mail address, but do allow private messages. So, how can we communicate (other than public posts)? I could send Shashank a private message, even though I prefer not to get them myself; he can send me an e-mail, even though he prefers not to receive them himself. Seems fair to me. Alternately, if I should be prevented from sending private messages, Shashank should be prevented from sending e-mails.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
