So, someone comes here to this forum, joins and sends me a PM:

I have a sub zero ref model 561 serial number M739803.

Freezer is working fine but the refrigerator set at 10 on the thermostat isn't cooling teh refrigerator it only get to around 52 degrees and I believe it should get cooler than that? Any suggestions?

Ed

I politely reply and tell him he should post his question in the forum because, afterall, this *is* a forum and that's how things are done... in a forum. He then emails me:

subject RE: New PM from Samurai Appliance Repair Man

If I wanted to do that why would I have sent a private message - how do I go about getting a refund, I didn't know I had to do this via the common message board.

So, he comes here, to a FORUM, and didn't think he'd have to post in the forum! Hello, is this thing on?

Folks, puh-leaze, don't be a cheesedork like our dearly departed Ed. If you need appliance repair help, start a new topic in the appropriate forum. PMs are great for questions about how to use the forum, how's your momma an' them, etc. But the real power of a forum is that others can come along and add to the discussion and/or benefit from it.

Domo! :dude:

They have to go in every now and again and tack 'em back up so they don't just fall out her various openings, if you know what I mean. Eh hem. But, hey, thanx fer axin'!

LOL - what a question - and the manner in which it was asked is just the cherry on the cake!
