I want to know whether or not you indulge in pming with strangers online? Personally, I have to know who the person is at first. I've made the mistake of pming back people I did not really know. They would ask for my information asking to simply have a conversation and become friends.


This happened twice. The first time it was a fake person. The second incident they just wanted to have "fun".


I will black out the name for privacy. But I am so fed up and want to shed light on this issue. I know people can make the wrong choice and trust those who do not deserve it. Why do people come on CR for this type of stuff?

What empty shell are you trying to fill?







Might as well just enjoy my shitpost.

Yes, I do PM certain people I like. And I do enjoy talking to them from time to time.

But there are a few occasions where I'll get random PMs from users I've never seen before. I've made a mistake of answering the PMs (especially the "troll" ones in the past when I was a noob forumer; I just didn't know better at the time) but now I don't waste time answering them at all.

Here's an example of a random I got recently:



They nuked tho it's funny how they always nuke.

I do PM people on CR however I don't do often other than giving invites to my discord.

I also receive the spam troll ones.
Most of the time I either mess with them, ignore them, or just respond with the image from jojo of "I refuse".

You'd think they'd step up their game and put some effort into trolling the pm's but alas they do not.

Edit: Just had another troll one before this post. They nuked afterwards.

Hahahaha wow! I can't believe there are people like that on CR.

To answer your question, I have received a few PMs (asking random questions) and sent one or two. I just asked what the person's forum avatar was as it caught my eye. That's about it though!

EDIT: Oh! I just remembered something else. I've gone to the "anime" section of the forums and picked a random user from the "guest pass" thread and PM'd them a guest pass. That counts too right?

I'm tempted to make a bait account to and go Chris Hansen on these suckers.

I bet you would never know it was me

I only PM people who add me to their friends list, but the only PM I receive are from group mods and from CR telling me about my guest passes. I kind of wish I got more PM's.

Damn. Sorry you had such terrible experiences with PMing.

But, to directly answer your main question, I am hoping to start. Waiting till I find a profile in which there are at least three common interests --- mainly common anime. After seeing so many decked out profiles, though, I should probably work on my profile first.

Yes, I have sent and received pms. Don't see a reason not to, since I'm always open to talk to new people about anything really. Though it's not like I spam people on the regular.

*Read through this saw "pms" and started laughing. So there's my maturity level for you guys

Not really. I've held a few conversations - maybe about 10 - but only about 3 of them lasted any longer than 10 back and forth messages. Unsurprisingly, not many people want to PM me, and I don't have anything to talk about with others, so I don't bother either.

I'll let you PM me if it makes you feel any more welcome.

Mostly people I know but there are creeps out there I'll just block if I get something that is over the line.

I probably wouldn't PM someone randomly but if someone messaged me I would reply. I'm not looking for friends here but I'm also not antisocial.
