So I've been thinking after a couple of years in this group about how often I send or get Private Messages and why I send or receive them.
I have sent them to other members to personally apologize for something that may have misunderstood in a thread after also apologizing in "public."
I've sent them because I really like what someone has had to say.
I've sent them to those moms I've gotten to know over time to see how they are doing.
I've gotten them because someone wanted to apologize, even though it wasn't necessary.
I've gotten them because people didn't want to break TOS by asking about a specific incident in a public forum.
I've gotten the angry stalker-ish ones which make me laugh. If I have something to say to someone, I can have my "spats" out in public for all to see.
What about you ladies? What are your feelings on PMs? Do you like them? Prefer to hash out disagreements in PMs than in public forums? Do you send them to check on your friends?
