Lol! It's like a catholic school around here with all the guilt.

And no, Ash, you haven't ever ignored any pm's from me.

Actually, no one in this thread has. I don't send tons, just a few.

But it does make me wonder when I see someone post something say, about their food or some training/issue they had and I pm them with a further question and I get ........nothing.

Michelle, you should see me live! Heh.

I ignore them sometimes...accidentally.

Sometimes I'm very active on this forum and sometimes I'm not. A month or two will go by without really getting on here. If there is some PM that's a month and a half old, a lot of the time I just don't bother. Other times I'll read a pm on my phone where it's a pain in the butt to reply and then simply forget about it....or when I'm busy and don't have time to respond and simply forget.... Sometimes I finally remember to respond, sometimes I don't.

I also sometimes intentionally ignore unsolicited advice. One time (on another forum, not a dog forum) someone PM'd me saying I needed to contact my vet about TPLO surgery because of how my dog was sitting crooked in a picture. hooookay.....

I have had two ignored over the years I have been a member here. Not a bad percentage!

One was a response to a PM the person had sent me, wanting to know if an offer I had made of some needlework supplies to another member was still available. I responded with a quick note of what I still had to share and they never responded back. Maybe they didn't want it?

The other instance was a PM I had sent to a breeder who was posting a lot on a thread that was getting a little heated. I had general questions about their dogs that had nothing to do with the thread, which I hadn't even posted on, but they never responded.

ETA: I always respond to PMs. I figure if someone took the time to contact me, the least I could do was acknowledge that by responding to them. Even the naughty ones.

Lies I found that out when I tried to PM you the other day. I have a question about doing several sports at the same time. Could you PM me your email?

I don't ignore PMs but sometimes take a bit to respond. Because I forget.

I haven't received any, so can't have ignored any! I've sent a couple (just to say "Hi" and would you mind if I asked some advice occasionally), but I've never gotten a response. In fairness, those people might be infrequent visitors to the board, but I don't know.

I never ignore PM's. I feel if I'm worthy of someone taking the time to reach out to me privately, the least I could do is answer them.

I think that is very commendable and shows character!

Sit Stay, that was me and my apologies, had some drama at home, husband got shot and needed surgery and was off his feet for 6 weeks, so needlework wasn't on the top of my mind. Thank you for the offer though. I enjoy reading your posts.
