    Thank you for replying.
    I will enable Leave Conversation option as soon as I finish this posting.
    If "by nature they are private" , then how did Patcooke get into my Inbox ?
    Can you explain that ?
    Perhaps, there is a hole in the privacy policy assured by the forum ?

    If someone starts a conversation, or you start someone with someone else, and you have allowed the conversation to be open, anyone in that conversation can invite anyone else into the same conversation.

    ........and you have allowed the conversation to be open.

    I never allow this conversation to be opened. I did not even know there was one until I logged in to the forum yesterday.
    I opened the Inbox and patcooke had already replied twice. You can see that from my scrolling screenshot.
    That is not much of a privacy.
    Besides enabling Leave Conversation option, I am changing Accept Conversation From option to "
    People You Follow only ", and I have no one to follow.
    I have also unchecked " Receive email when a new conversation message is received ".
    Hope that will stop people from messing with my private Inbox.
    My privacy is what I cherish most. This incident has violated my privacy.

    Anyone can send you a message via private conversation it is up to you to determine how to deal with this in your settings. Kind regards.
