Question about user control panel

Recently, I've logged into my account and have seen a message pop up. Not a private message, but something more akin to instant messaging. When I click on it, I was able to reply back. But now how do I find this record of instant messages?

I just logged onto my account and can't find them. I can find all private messages, no problem with that. It's just those chat-like instant messages I don't know where to find. And how do I initiate them?

Am I the only one who has problems using the user control panel?

It is confusing. The trick is that the heading called "your profile" is clickable, unlike all the other headings. Click it and you will see the visitor messages.

Ahh, yes! That's it. Thanks a lot Dale. I didn't realize those messages were sent/received via the user's profile page. But now one thing has me concerned. I just clicked on your avatar and came to your profile page and all visitor messages were showing. So they are not private? Wow, I didn't realize that. Does that mean when I reply to one of these messages they are also not private? LOL, if so, I better be careful what I say in them.

That is correct. PM is private but visitor messages are public although not posted universally. You should always be careful what you say on the Internet, private or not.

Phew! I went back and checked my recent messages and didn't see anything that might be embarrassing if publicly viewed. But it's good to know and I'll be careful in the future.

In terms of the internet and privacy, you are right, Dale. I kind of always knew that the government and a site's owners and managers might always have access to anything I write. But I do expect a level of privacy from other people if something is marked "private" as in private messaging.

Thanks again for your help.
