Should IMDB bring back the option to send messages to other IMDB users?

IMDb has shifted their 'Message Board' material here on GetSatisfaction. So, another board they may not (or should I say will not) provide.
90% was just futile, stupid arguments of people disagreeing without listening to each other. You had to spend too much time to find interesting information. GS suits me fine.

Once upon a time, I developed the message boards system.
I know what mjeyds means.
Looking at the Time Stamp of IMDb Boards
these May have been on Amazon computers
not the same as IMDb Data
Maybe Amazon did not want all that space and use on their computers
taken up by the Boards
Originally a fan-operated website,
the database is owned and operated by IMDb.com, Inc., a subsidiary of Amazon
Headquarters: Seattle, Washington, U.S

IMDb Boards were better organized with multi nested replies
and WE could edit a message After replies
and more fun with Icons and color text
