Reply To: New Website Changes Coming Soon

Private messaging was present previously only because it was a part of the third-party software used to implement the forum. Every site which uses that particular software package has private messaging, whether they have any need or desire for it or not. In my opinion, such a feature is appropriate only for a social networking site, which this is not. The purpose of this site is to publish information pertaining to GBS and CIDP which is freely available to all. I do not expect the Foundation to expend any of its limited resources implementing social networking systems which are available elsewhere.
