Guys, I have an idea.
Clifford, when you reply to your PM's, do you reply from your email box, or do you go to this message board and type your reply from the "My Messages" tab.
If you reply from the notification email, that comes to your email box, then I doubt that anybody will get the replies.
If you reply from the message board here, you should be made in the shade.
I would love to see your message inbox. You probably have so many stacked up in there....LOL
