My way of handling a minor PM-ing me was to let the Mod's know. They did not say for me not to PM the minor, just to let them know if anything came up that they needed to know about. By keeping the Mods informed as to what is happening, it keeps me out of the shits. I don't think there can be a rule set in concrete about this. In general, PM's between minors and adults are not approved of. I feel if a minor contacts a adult, the adult should let a Mod know about it. In my case I gave the mod a link to the PM, so he could follow it if he wanted to. I have nothing to hide. By doing it the way I did, it lets the Mod take a look at what is being said, helps the Mod to make a decision whether he wants me to keep talking to the minor.

Take care,

I too have done that on occasion Clifford. Not always though, I have chatted with them in chat and had followup PM to see how their doing or they will PM me about some suggestion I made regarding a situation. If I think there is some thread that might me misinterpred I will check with a mod. It is all on the up and up and so I have no problem with them checking my messages and have encuraged such. Still I have been pretty lax about no communication with the teens.

In all seriousness, the private corispondence(P Ming) that i'm able to have with adults is the primary reason why i'm still on this site. without the pm's of the adults i would've never known that people were on my side during the aftermath of my first post. if i had not been able to recieve or send out private messages to adults i would've been gone.

Let me just say here publicly; i don't have a problem with people PMing me in chat, if they're "just checking in", or need to chat about something they don't want everyone in the room to hear- but please don't PM me in chat, unless there's something specific or urgent on your mind! I tend to type slowly, and don't hit "Enter" after every three words, and actually stop to consider my posts/responses; so having a general "room" post, or "PM" post, cut in half, and appearing in the wrong place, can be irritating. Alright, i'll stop ranting now...
