It seems not available yet since the site's upgrade.

Yeah ! I think PCA should be done by the trading standards for calling it an upgrade. Retrograde more apt even the link posting is clumsier

I have often wondered why this facility was withdrawn.

It was handy on occasion (I think I used it about twice in ten years) and seemed to be rarely abused, and only then by those who weren't aware of the convention (that you only used it after being invited to)

I believe that the withdrawl of the facility was correct.

Any facility that can be abused, will be abused. That is human nature.

None of us forum users are in a position to know if the facilty was previously abused or not. Therefor, the decision to remove was correct.

Not sure if 'removed' is the right word. Possibly not re-instated. Mabe we can have a poll to see if it's worth re-instating?

Tea boy I'm sure that had the Facility been abused the FE would have made a ststement to that effect and as to why it was Removed if as said it was indeed removed as opposed to just not available

I think it just hasn't been fixed to work yet. If you look on the main Helproom (not one of the threads) at the bottom just above the dark grey area there is a key to symbols 'What do the Forum icons mean?' and one with grey envelope and head &shoulder silhouette is listed as 'Email Forum user'
