I'm not against technology, but it just appears that most of the new stuff coming along is just to make you spend more money. Look at the cell phone, what has it become. I see people who can't carry on a conversation, but can spend every minute on their phone texing every detail of their life.

I right clicked, but there is no reload to click on.

In case you still see the flashing envelope after you have viewed your PM messages -

If you are using Internet Explorer for your browser:
Right click on a blank spot in a Web page and choose "Refresh"

If you are using Firefox (recommended)or Safari:
Right click and choose "Reload"

PM messages are essential for members who hide their email address from view.

ON ONE WEBSITE I HANG AT WE HAVE SOMETHING CALLED A CHATBOX WINDOW. IT'S LOCATED UNDER THE WEBSITE BANNER AND ABOVE THE FORUMS. HOWEVER I CAN'T IMAGINE THAT FEATURE HERE. THERE WOULD JUST BE WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE CONVERSING HERE "LIVE" AT ONCE! LOL!

PM'S TO ME ARE LIKE A SIMPLER INTERNAL 2ND EMAIL OPTION.

I made the change to Firefox a couple months back and must admit it was well worth the effort in most cases. I'm with Jack on the Twitter and Facebook and texting. I often wonder how these same people addicted to their cell phones would have gotten by back when we used phones that were still connected to the wall via a coiled cord. I often think people talk just for the sake of talking. Take all that texting and talking energy and put it to some useful purpose like a hobby or improving your life in some way and we'd be collectively in a much better place IMO.
