    If someone PMs you and ask you some questions about something you posted,
    and you reply to the best of your knowledge and belief. Then they don't like what you
    said in your reply, even though most of it had already been posted publicly. They reply
    to you and say some untrue things and tell you that they are blocking you so you cannot
    reply to them.

    If you did reply, where would the message go? Would you get an undeliverable message
    or a return or anything?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Yeah, I think so, by blocking the person, then not allowing contact from those on your blocked list....

    EDIT:

    Actually looks like you only have three choices,
    Send and Receive none
    Send and Receive all
    Receive only from mods and contacts.....

    If you do not want to send or receive personal messages, you may disable the personal messaging system.
    Enable Personal Messaging

    You may limit the receipt of private messages to just moderators and your contacts. Other members who attempt to send messages to you will be told that you have disabled private messaging.

    They are broken down into individual letters and recycled as alphabet soup and given to the needy. Don't worry it all goes to a good cause.

    It was a simple blue radar 'blip'......thanks, but it wouldn't go with my name....

    Wait, it might have been another member, blipper......he has a radar-ish thing now, but not the one I was remembering *shurg*

    That's because I have you blocked.....no, wait......that wasn't you....don't know why you'd not be able to see it?!

    It's about if another member has you on their blocked list and you really don't have any way to know if they do that I am aware of, and you send them a PM, where will it go.

    Does it just disappear?
    Will it just show up in your sent box like they did receive it?
    Will you get a notice that it was undeliverable?
    Or a notice that they have blocked you from sending them a PM?

    You can't block by individual member. You can change your settings to only accept messages from members in your contacts list. Anyone that sends you a pm that is not in your contacts list will receive a message that you have turned off your private messaging.

    So to answer your questions.

    1) The message doesn't go anywhere because it never gets sent. You receive the "member has messaging system disabled" notice as soon as you click "Submit Message".

    2) The message does not go into your "Sent Items" folder because it was never sent.

    3) If you do not receive the "messaging system disable" message, the member has not changed their setting and will received your message, but that doesn't mean that they will read it before deleting it. :lol

    Okay, thanks for clearing that up for me, Montagar. So, it went into my sent folder and I didn't get the disabled message, so they received it then. Yeah, you KNOW they'd read it!!!.......probably will act like they didn't or never admit that they did, but I'm pretty sure it was read if it got delivered! I should have requested a read receipt, but didn't think about it in time, I will next time.....

    @Jannix Quinn: Yeah, why didn't I think of that......d'oh! I'm gonna do it anyway, just so we can get some first hand experience......blocking you, awaiting PM sending......

    I always thought we had an Ignore list feature. Don't we? If you put someone on your ignore list, will you still get their PMs?

    That's what we are trying to figure out. I put JQ on my ignore list and he said he sent me a PM, and I have not received it.

    Montagar says it's a disable all or disable all but contacts and you would get t a message that the member has disabled PMs or not enable PMs or something.....???

    We're still experimenting....

    Well, I guess that answers the question then. If you put someone on your ignore list, you don't receive their PMs.......

    I guess I'll just have to air my dirty laundry in public then!! :love

    If you want to post pictures of your panties and stuff, you'd better unblock me.

    Well that is interesting, I was approaching this question strictly from a pm standpoint and did think about having someone on ignore blocking private messages as well as posts (I guess that makes sense though). But it does seem strange that your message will show in the "Sent Items" folder, and yet you receive no message regarding it not being delivered. I will look into this further.

    Yeah, I think the system should inform you if your PM isn't deliverable.
    I mean, you could be cryin' and explainin' and beggin' for forgiveness
    and it's not even going through to the addressee, then you think you're
    just being ignored and really get all PO'd........Maybe that is why some
    conflicts go unresolved.....Somebody didn't get the "I'm Sorry" PM : )
