In response to miscricket's comment:
I actually have come to think that e-mail notifications are more trouble than they are worth. In all the other sites I belong to , I turned off the e-mail notifications. All they did was clog up my inbox.
What would be nice is if they restored the "friends" feature especially in relation to private messages. I don't like putting my profile on "private"...but I also would like to only recieve private messages from people of my choosing.

I absolutely agree with you that they should restore the friends feature. Right now you have that one column to bounce from to get to the posters to like to message. I suppose you could copy all their URLs but it just is not needed if they restore that feature.
The private vs. public feature can be split from this feature. In fact it used to be. On private only friends could message you and see your messages.
I do disagree about the email notification. A lot of us have busy in boxes. In the past, when I subscribed to a discussion, I always got a notification that someone had posted a new post to that discussion. This helps from leaving me with a poster thinking I am not responding to a question and also leaves me without having to check the forums constantly.
I do wish they would restore the delete function. Can see do reason not to.
Lastly, now we all have one column of our commentary available. Of course before all our posts were readily available from our home page. If not that, maybe some compromise...say a year?
Do not know of BDC is reading this. Perhaps those of us who want certain functions restored do have to contact them directly. I believe the forums would pick up some if that happened.
