qwerty, folks are sending PM's 'cause we love ya, and thank you for your presence here, quite seriously. This forum is gelling into real life friendships in a way I've never seen in any internet experience.
I was getting the same PITA msgs too, click on it and get conniption fits from the browser. I finally discovered when the message box comes up, hit Cancel, don't accept. Then, at your leisure, go to your inbox. That opens another simple browser screen and we can then bug the dickens outta each other (just kidding of course). After using Cancel a few times, the forum appears to have saved my preference and I no longer get the little popup. -- R.
