I've now disabled receipt of private messages.  While I can see some utility in them on occasion,
I question whether they are compatible with the Forums purpose of shared knowledge, and whether
they really ought to be enabled by default.  I know I don't have the time to check mail and forums
*and* messages during breaks.  Am I missing something by classifying them as a time-suck?
