Usually when someone goes silent they will leave Gag. Should we be able to message them, even if they have a private profile, if they have been inactive, say, for a month, just so we can encourage them to return?
This would be limited to ONE message from a given user... to avoid trolling or harassment.
Often, I think people wouldn't leave if they knew they were missed!

This isn't a bad idea, hopefully though their account is linked to an active e-mail. I say this because whenever I comment, and then somebody has something to add to what I said then I get an e-mail telling me something has happened, which encourages me to come back and then interact with the other members. While it is true I can't speak for all members, but I believe that perhaps some of the other members might come back with the extra positive feedback. :-)0
