Quote from: Wellwisher on November 11, 2019, 07:15:17 PMI know a admin owner of a small forum (4k members & approx 50k posts) who actually disabled his PM system due to some female members being harassed. Most people on the forum were using the PM system genuinely. However the owner decided to punish everyone. The negative affect of which meant the forum began to suffer from inactivity.I would probably just add a simply Buddy system (whereby members can choose who can send'em dic pics/ PM's. Also devs might want to think about adding defaults options to protect users as soon as they register. Later members can adjust those privacy options to suit them.
