Why can't I send messages to other users?

we can send messages only if we follow each other? for instance if I follow someone but he does not follow me back, I can't send him a message. I saw that under some users, there's a link with "Send ... a message ", but it's not at everyone. Am I missing something ?

You've pretty much got it. It can be inconvenient. I guess if you really need to send them a message, you can reply to a post that they've commented on or posted.

yes thats right you can only message each other if you are following each other. will be nice if you can message anyone but i guess they have it like this to prevent spammers messaging people

Yeah you can only send a message to someone who your are following and is following you back... If you really need to send them a massage I would leave a comment on one of their old deals or something...

I would guess DP is working on a way for us to communicate one-on-one. The site is growing so fast the code jockeys must be swamped.

Yes, I think it is a good idea not being to send messages to everyone without following each other. I didn't know that the site had this rule, that's why I asked :)
