Do PM's sometimes fall through the cracks?
« on: April 27, 2015, 09:20:38 PM »
I sent someone a PM a while ago and he apparently didn't receive it.

Is this a common occurrence? The message in question was fairly long, so perhaps messages over a certain length are unintentionally filtered out? Is there some technical glitch that causes this to occur? Short PM's (including some I've sent to the same person) get through just fine. So I'm not sure what's going on.

I'm also wondering if PM's are individually vetted by moderators before being sent. If they are, then it'd possible for a message to be accidentally deleted or passed over, thus never reaching its intended recipient.

No, PMs are not vetted. Glitches happen, though. I suggest you tick the option of saving a copy in your outbox; it may allow you to retrieve a lost message, depending on where the wires got crossed.

Yeah, I did save a copy. I re-sent it to him. Hopefully it got through this time.

He might have blocked you.

The system informs you if the recipient is unable to receive PMs, from anyone generally or from you particularly.

No, he didn't block me. Looks like he received all the PM's I sent him except one (and that was a while ago). When I resent it to him, he received it the second time.
