The private messaging system is not to be used as a way to bypass our rules. If posting information in a forum would violate our rules, then exchanging that information using the private messaging system would also rule our rules. This includes using PMs to send links for downloading files. Please take those activities off-site.

The system will automatically delete PMs that are older than 30 days. If you need to keep copies for archival purposes, then you can export them as text/csv/xml and store them locally. The function is easily accessed on your main Private Messages page.
