Disable it, please.

I am contemplating disabling "Visitor Messages" for all users.

Visitor Messages are often confused for Private Messages. The difference is one is publicly visible to everyone, and one is private.

When you click on someone's user profile, the first 'tab' in their profile that displays is their Visitor Message profile (assuming they have it enabled, which most do). You can then write messages here. This is kind of like Facebook's "wall".

What I find is that 99% of people don't realize the message is public. Their intention was to write a private message, not a public one.

Let me know if you have an opinion on this.

Mike
