Please show whether a potential contact is no longer a member. Most of my potential contacts never result in a reply. They cannot all be wrong ones. Some do kindly reply saying sorry not mine. Such a waste of time if the contact is no longer a member

Genes no longer answer any suggestions on here, you would need to email your suggestion.

However, you cannot send messages to anyone who have removed their details. Genes do send out pm notifications to anyone who has an email address. It is then up to the recipient to either read or reply. If someone is still a member but hadn’t notified an email address change then they won’t get it.

Some people can take years to reply.
