If you try to send someone a pm on a mobile device, when you go to their profile, no option appears to do so. However, on some browsers (Google Chrome for Android) you can “request desktop site” where webpages will then return the normal desktop site. If you then attempt to PM on said mobile device, it ends up public for some reason. @DRow plz fix
@antichamber: To fix this, all you have to do is start a new thread as normal, and select who will be able to view the conversation.
