    Didn't know there would be so much animosity towards a simple change that would improve the functionality of the site. Sorry if I don't want to archive them on my computer. I routinely use many different computers and travel so it's much, much simpler to log on and check the PM's box, and I don't have to constantly update an archive or whatever.

    It is this sense of entitlement that irritates some of us. This is a free site. Don't overdue your stay.

    Whatever. Since when did being free stipulate you can't complain about anything ever? I'm making a simple suggestion in the part of the forum that was specified for suggestions, god-forbid. I mean, if they up the PM limit are all of you going to complain for some reason?

    Maybe in the future rather than asking "Thoughts?" you just state your opinion/desire. It appears that contrary opinion is not being easily digested.

    Quick question: Why is this (Round 2)?

    Brian, I was asking for thoughts on my proposal, not on what people think about me. I don't think anyone has given a reason as to why it should be left at 100.

    It was discussed two years ago or so and consequently raised from 50 to 100.

    Maybe you could gather some data to support the request. How about a poll? Doesn't this site have that capability? If not, I think they should add it.
