If you see "Tell this hound they really should answer some profile questions!" how do you go about actually doing it?

  1. I suppose there's no answer.

    1. It's just meant as placeholder text to indicate that they haven't answered any of the questions yet.

      1. There's no way to PM anyone?

          No.

            ... thank G-d. If we had private messaging, think of all the chow tips that would never see the light of day!

            1. re: Das Ubergeek

              So the reason there is no private messaging is that people might use it to conceal chow tips?

                I can't speak for the moderators or the engineering staff -- but it's certainly something that I, were I in their place, would be considering.

        2. No, it's just that the nature of the message board is to get tips out in the open, for others to see. If you wanted inter-personal messaging, you could go to another forum, like AIM to talk about more in-depth or non-message board material. u know.

            Yes, understood, except that there's no way to find out somebody's AIM handle unless you ask for it in a thread and hope they see your question and they respond before the mods delete everything. Besides, I don't want PM capabilities here for the purpose of trading tips in secret.
