I am wondering why there is a button for contact member in some cases because under "willing to correspond" (on a member profile) they have answered "no". Shouldn't that button be disabled in this case?

Thanks

re: Willing to correspond?

That was my question a few months ago Adam. Why would anyone join any orginization or club and not want to communicate with others? Maybe they prefer to just sit and read the DB, or look at the auction/approval lots, but they didn't need to join up just for that. It does take many different people to make a village, doesn't it?

re: Willing to correspond?

To me, "Willing to correspond" implies friendly chit-chat, perhaps to initiate trades, discuss common interests, etc. My understanding is that if the member selects "no," then he/she basically wishes to be free of such banter.

However, there are other reasons why you might need to contact a member: unpaid invoice, non-arrival of auction winnings, a message which, if posted on the DB, might be embarrassing, etc. In this instance it may be necessary to contact a member where "correspondence" is not your aim.
