Sometimes I want to chat in private with my rants friends here but unfortunately the dev rant there's no option for private messages.

This is bad.

    Just post private messages in the joke/meme category, nobody has that filter on anyway

    @alexbrooklyn yes, but sometimes I would like share some codes or something else when someone asks for help about coding.

    I don't know, a private interaction would be nice too.

    Just exchange some other username on any communication service.
    PMs would be an extremely bad idea.

    That's what the webpage field in your profile is for. Adding private messaging to this would open a massive can of shitty, shitty worms, in terms of privacy and data retention.

    @bahua Easily fixed:
    No PMs.
    Add a chat feature without storing messages. Add option for users to block all chat messages. Done.
    No spam, no data retention problems.
    Drawback : If you leave the page, well, you lose all messages (Just keep 2 tabs open and you’ll be fine).

    Now after I read all yours points.

    I still think at least have something like secret chat of telegram, you send what you want to, after 10 secs or leave the chat is deleted.
