Hello,

I have question why Java Ranch not support to send Private Message to multiple Java Ranch user.


Thanks, Nishan Patel

Because a private message is meant to be something between just two members. We believe that it's better to UseTheForumNotEmail.

also only being allowed to send to one person at a time makes it harder to spam the entire community.

Personally, I far prefer email over PM anyway. And email can handle multiple receivers.
