One question: is there any way to tag or notify a person of a post? Does quoting a previous post notify the original poster? Does tagging with @[username] notify the user?
I don't know of a way (other than what klricks
mentioned), but I'm not an expert on the forum software. But, really, that's the wrong way to look at it. People are not and should not be obligated to pay attention to you just because it is what you
want them to do. If you want help for something that you're not getting in the natural course of a discussion, post in the Wanted section and offer something in return.
And if I don't want millions of people and spambots accessing my facebook? Then what?
Then . . . you don't understand how Facebook works.
And, realistically, it likely was only a matter of time before spambots showed up here and started clogging up the forum with both public and private messages (Heck, it might already be happening to some extent behind the scenes).
People need to stop being silly about this. Either you want there to be a way for random people to contact you "directly" or you don't. If you don't, then the random person you want to contact needs to allow random people to contact them. If neither of you want that, congratulation, you both have mutual privacy.
