:inlove: Ok, so I have enjoyed sending and receiving a PM.  The topic of interest was great, however  it will no longer serve any long term purpose (archiving is an option!).

 

SO..question...what is the typical norm for when to delete a PM without it appearing to be a negative experience or offending anyone?

 

I appreciate any thoughts about your experience in how you elect to delete PM's, do you give notice, just do it?

 

Thanks!

 

softeyes... :flowers:

Honestly, I don't think that there's any "norm". If you need to free up space in your Inbox, or if you don't need a conversation anymore, just delete it. If that person wants to PM you again, he'll send a new one, simple as that.

softeyes, you can delete the pm's you and I have exchanged.  Our conversations have been interesting but if it's no longer needed delete it.

Reading this topic reminds me I need to clean out my pm's.

LOL...are you kidding!!!  I look forward to continued laughs with you!! June is almost here   :smilers:

 

Trust me, my "in box" capacity looks just like my checking account...almost empty!  I'm a worrier, you can elect to throw out a greeting card without the sender knowing, but a PM feels a bit different!  I'll get the hang of it!

 

Thanks...have a great Sunday!  :flowers:
