This is an honest question. Some users have PM'd me and I was unable to answer back. So this is why I'm asking this question.

If you can't send PMs, contact them through some way other than using the forum, such as email.

Do you literally not have the option to send a pm?

yes. It's gone

Used to have the ability to send them but I raged out of spite in anger.

I can't remember what I said to others that caused me to lose it, it's been over a year and there's no way to check.

Answer to the OP:  No.  You never have to make any thread.  Doing nothing is an option.

So you brought it on yourself.  Consequences happen.


If you can't send PMs, contact them through some way other than using the forum, such as email.

That's what I normally do, but not everyone has them

Their loss for not including anything else in their profile, then, I guess.  Maybe they're OK with that (I am), maybe they're not.

This more or less sums it up to the point I'm willing to endorse it as being the official answer—I don't think there's much reason to continue the thread.
