View Full Version : How Do They Send a Private Message to the Wrong Person?


V2-OMG!

After a month's self-imposed exile, I log in and goodie! A private message has been languishing in my inbox.

I dart to said box....only to find it was meant for someone else!

If that wasn't enough of a disappointment, the sender was gushing on about the intended recipient's beautiful airplane. Not my private message and worse, not my airplane.

I feel left out....and deprived! :{

This isn't the first wayward PM. A previous one (different sender) invited me for another "liaison." "I will be arriving on (blankety-blank) at 1:20 p.m., Heathrow on Flt.*** Don't worry about the hotel room. I'll pay for it again....." and so on and so forth.

At first, I was wondering if I had that weird sleepwalking condition and had booked a flight, grabbed my passport, went to the airport and walked onto a plane headed for London, met so-and-so in the paid-for hotel room, then headed back to the airport for the return flight, climbed back into bed and woke-up totally oblivious to my overseas "liaison."

However, upon checking my passport, I hadn't gone anywhere.

I felt even more left out....and deprived! :{

But....back to the question. How the heck do they manage to send a private message to the wrong person - especially those "liaison" ones???

I sense some impending drama in all this :}

I never get any invites for a liaison all expenses paid.

Maybe if I post a better picture?

Typing in "V2-" into the address bar in the PM page gives us 3 options:

V2-Gear Up
V2-OMG!
V2-Rotate

That's how it can happen...

Um-lifting, I didn't know we had that feature, so tried it. I see how now.

Pug, so I've gathered. I typed in "411"...and ten other options came up.
I suppose he doesn't get these erroneous private messages -
they check, double-check, then check again just to avoid him!

When prune chat was on the go one could Pchat with another on line without the rest reading your chat,a good ruse was to type summat like

"So I jumped out of her bedroom window just as her husband came in the front door"

and pretend you were speaking to someone on pchat and had inadvertantly posted hit the wrong button and posted in on the open chat page.

One was a bit of a scamp in those days:rolleyes:

Typing 'corsair' into the address produced this little list of squadron mates. Fifteen in all. A veritable corsaircopia of corsairians. We should all get together in the bent wing bar and engage in corsairsation.

Corsair F-4U
corsair007
Corsair033
corsair1
corsair12
Corsair19
corsair303
Corsair320
corsair33
corsair4gu
CORSAIR50
Corsair888
CorsairDB1
Corsairdriver
This should have led to confusion and misplaced liaisions but sadly it has not. In any case as clearly the original and best corsair. Who could mistake me for anyone else?

If money/time were no object you could have rocked up to LHR, Flt *** at 1.20pm with one of those little signs the limousine drivers carry bearing the user name of said PMer :}
