Just to stay completely on topic (which i always do ), i just checked and found the same thing. I don't usually read that message, just know that i have a PM and delete the email, but Kenny made me curious

Yeah I noticed it too. It doesnt really matter to me one way or the other. I actually kind of like seeing the message without logging on.

Re: Private Messages no longer private?

Unfortunately you still have to log in to reply though. I hate PM's, I see no benefit to them. If you want to send a message send an email

Right, but by getting the message emailed to you, you can decide if you want to log in right away and respond or if it can wait awhile.
