"PM sent" - what's the point?
Hello!

Almost every time someone offers or searches something through the "Classifieds" section he will get one - or several - responses consiting of those two words: "PM sent". What's the point? He gets the mails anyway. Is this supposed to "stake one's claim" at the item by being the first who replies with that one-liner?

Once "PM sent" has been posted, am I still welcome to inquire about an item or does that mean it is gone?

Very curious...
Regards,
Max

RE: "PM sent" - what's the point?
I have fallen to the issue where for whatever reason, there is no e-mail message alerting me to the fact that someone sent me a PM. I usually get the e-mail message, but sometimes I don't for no known reason. I assume the posting of "PM sent" is to alert the OP that there is a PM waiting, whether or not they were alerted by e-mail.

Just my thought...

Inboxes have fixed sizes and can get full. Mine is not there yet, but I wonder what happens to new PMs when it is full.

I regularly check the various threads without a LogIn (& assume others do as well). I am unaware of pending messages during these visits, a notice is appreciated.
