Why some helpers don't accept private messages?

Post by bellea »

Who likes this:

[16:16] (belea) hello
[16:16] (Crip) Please do Not send me private messages without permission.

or

[15:57] (belea) hi
[15:57] -Snatcher (snatcher@localhost.nl)- You are not on any channels I'm in, and thus, due to spambots, your message has been declined. Prefix your message with 'OC:' to bypass the ignore.
[15:57] (belea) OC: hi
[15:57] (Snatcher) what

helpers and other IRC users can have their own decision whether to accept query or pvt messages..... :classic:

All users may choose who to speak with and who not to speak with, actually.

And I think that's for the forum moderators to decide, not you.

It is considered rude to open a private chat with someone you don't know, without announcing that intention in one of the channels he's in and without asking for permission. The fact that some people consider it "normal" doesn't change the fact that it's rude. In real world, you don't go to a meeting, go straight to someone you don't know and who is already engaged in a conversation, and start telling him your problems. You would politely ask to interrupt him and ask for some assistance in private whenever he has time. Same goes on IRC: if you want to be helped, the least you need to do is to be polite, patient and respectful with the helpers. If you can't do that much, you won't get any help. And that's why helpers block private messages unless you publicly asked for permission to talk in private to them.

Lets say that you are not in one of his channels ...
how can you ask him permision to talk with him ???
private .. yes ??
I understand because of Drones they deny the pvt but .. they see who is contacting them and they can let him ask his q.

Most Helpers/ops that i saw war away or they didn't want to talk with us/me ... Ignoring

I think Empus is the coolest IRCop that i know ..

Undernet Rullz ..
Huston we got a problem.. Apollo 13 is going down....
