    Please add the ability to direct message ("personal message" as it sometimes is called) any user on GeoNet.

    Currently you can't message anyone, unless they follow YOU.

    This is just one of the many ways GeoNet is vastly inferior to the old forum. It's not just the enormous amount of whitespace, poor UI and bad design, (it looks like a badly-designed iPad app yet ironically is very hard to use and has fatal flaws on mobile) but it lacks things like this that are basic functionality of a forum. 

    To be honest, it would be better to just go back to the old bb forum. (you could backport much of the 'social' stuff to it easily) But I know the execs got sold on this new and shiny by the vendor. Please just add direct messages, thank you.
