    It has recently come to my attention that in some cases posting the title of a PM is the same thing as posting the contents of a PM.

    If that is true, fine, but I would like to see it written by someone in an official capacity.

    Thanks for your consideration in this matter. It is difficult to follow the rules when the rules are murky.

    As a corollary...can we even mention the fact that we received a PM from someone?

    For example: "Ravi PMed me last night at 7:06pm."

    Which is an interesting question considering that I have seen people post the contents of PMs from reputation comments and that seems to be okay. So is it just reputation comment pms that are okay to post?
