(although I suppose I could just test this out myself, I thought I'd ask...)

Does the private message service mean that someone from outside glbtq.com could send me an email message to, for example:

Ryan@glbtq.com

Or can only people with profiles on glbtq.com send email to each other?

Thanks,
--Ryan.

Ryan,

The private messaging system only allows communications between site members. Right now, we do not have an e-mail system that allows you to create ryan@glbtq.com.

Our private messaging system works just like e-mail, but only members can use it.

Hmm, can we use our account here as an email address?

A spammer/scammer launched an attack on April 6 in which he or she joined glbtq.com and then sent a private message to many of our members. The private message included a link to what appears to be a spam/scam page.

To combat the problem, the private messaging feature of the discussion boards was turned off and the spammer/scammer's membership was deactivated.

I hope this helps.
