Known problem, if you are helpful some assume you have plenty of time.1) Often I respond by saying that when they post the same question on the forum there are many more people to help and that they will get faster and better answers.2) Unless the issue is interesting I feel free to take (much) time before responding ("Sorry, no time") just like normal e-mail.What I find a bit annoying is that they often do not provide any link or so and they sometimes assume you still know their "project" while you see dozens ...That is about how I handle it. If they don't provide links to their posting I won't even bother to respond.Lefty
The really annoying PMs are the ones from members with zero posts - they've just decided that they're not going to post on the forum, and that you're going to be their personal helpline.
I've seen signatures that are along the lines of 'Do not PM me a question unless you are prepared to pay for consultancy'.
