Is there an etiquette about sending notes to mefites you have not met? [more inside]

Cortex: My friend write, he get message, he show metafilter. Why no?

So ummm... Yeah, I'm pretty sure the OP of the thread below me was asking in a VERY creative way: Why is there a metafilter policy against telling others via postings what you received in MeMail? Easy on the trigger, cortex. Just because you CAN delete and end threads, doesn't mean you should.

MeFi Messaging

Can i just say I think it'd be great to have a messaging system on Mefi? (Primarily because I've belatedly added what I hope will be a helpful response to an AskMefi post, and I've got no way of alerting the person who asked the question..)

It's been discussed before, but I can't see a definitive ruling..

What to do when there is no e-mail?

What to do when there is no e-mail?

I've been following the thread regarding the film Waking Life, and found peebo's comments to be quite interesting as (her or his) take on the film was quite different from mine, I was hoping to strike up a conversation via e-mail. Alas, this new poster to MeFi has not supplied an address.

In the interests of discourse (and etiquette management) should this information be required of members?

Also, what's the proper way to get a hold of someone lacking an address? I'm reluctant to post a "hey please e-mail me" message in the thread itself, but I can't think of another means of contact.

Messaging System?

Instant Messenging.

Some sort of system via which one can leave short messages for any of the members here by clicking on their name, typing the msg and sending it. When the member comes online, he/she can find it via a new instant msg notifier.

DeskMod uses a system like that, although it's PHP based, perhaps there is a ColdFusion based system too.

Alternatively, you could just setup an ICQ/AIM messenging panel in the profile, from which one can send the member a short message.
