Private Messaging (Conversations) Conversations can be started with another member or several members at any time. Privacy! We provide anonymity for our members by allowing them to register with a pseudo(pretend) name which is very important in today's online world. Also, with our built in privacy controls members are able to control who can view what on their profile. Member's options are all visitors, members only, or people you follow only. By default visitors are restricted by system wide settings as to what they can see without members explicitly setting anything.
