    I think you're missing the point of the platform.

    I can't directly talk to you on Instagram without sending you an image first - it's not designed for that. Dribble isn't a discussion platform either. Same with Tumblr. The closest is Facebook, but that's odd with new people as a message will go to your "other" inbox and possibly never be seen.

    The best place to send someone a quick direct message (for example, 'hey, we should catch up and get a drink') is Twitter. Note: A DN discussion thread is not the right place for it either ;)

    It's really not a big issue, but that's why (I think) Twitter exists, and why I mentioned it. You're potentially missing quick interactions from people who are fans of your work which could lead to job opportunities.

      Fair enough. I just haven't felt the need for that, really. Ask me again in a few months and I might have a different response, though.
