    I'm just wondering how many people realise that when sending a PM, you're allowed to click cancel on the 'request for a confirmation receipt' option when it appears. Your message still goes through. Also, if you're sending the PM, then you should already be fairly sure the user will be reading it as I'm not sure anyone actually does ignore them. Just thought you'd like to know that it still works even if you click 'cancel'

    *nods* I know that not all people click 'Ok', but you'd be surprised at the number who do. I just find myself wondering why. Then I thought that perhaps they saw the 'cancel' to mean cancelling the message itself. Hence I posted. Though this is now in the About UK-Learning sub-forum lol.

    Nah, not surprised tbh.. most of the PMs I get have the 'send confirmation' thing!
