    It goes a little like this : you reply to a public topic and then the OP comes after you via PM in order to "get more details".

    A forum is made to be public. If you must ask in private, then you are requesting a consultancy. If you cannot post in public, then it is not forum-worthy material.

    Private Messages are meant to be used for private matters. Getting payment, settling details that don't concern the public and so on. They are NOT meant for you to continue your public discussion in private, one on one, as if seeking special treatment.

    It really pisses me off to receive private questions about public discussions, as if I'd give you any special treatment in private.

    thing that bugs me most is when step by step u give away free methods
    with steps so easy to follow an idiot can do it...

    then you get pms from new members wanting your own personal methods
    that you use to make money from.......

    that grinds me.....
