    Not at all... I just do a lot of support and when people are looking for a specific thing and do not find it, it usually results in questions. As a someone who is not totally new to the internet, I was able to guess that "Conversations" was a reasonable substitute. However, it took some time while I was looking for "Send a PM" or "Privater Messages" as I expected.

    Just a suggestion...

    Alright mate. Sorry that I called you a troll. It's just the time that's short on me and I speed up the processes. Thanks for helping us out.

    Oh, I get it! By the time things got back to normal, I owed someone a lot of dinners, and foot rubs. :) She was understanding, but made me earn forgiveness. :) No worries...

    The algorithm should be slightly more secure than bitcoin (official word is "at least as secure"). Of course, it's not clear whether it's possible to have a completely irreversible hashing algorithm, so everything is theory. There are some important bug fixes to the code though that address issues such as transaction malleability.

    Making an offline (cold storage) wallet will be possible, so secure storage is definitely an option. Wallet binaries will be released closer to launch: whether they are secure or not depends on the devs' skills, which are significant.

    Has this happened yet? I am worried that Decred emails do not get through gmails spam filters.

    Any correspondence that goes through e-mail regarding airdrop or anything else will be broadcast through all possible platforms. It'll be on the forum as a general notification to all users, Twitter, reddit, and even Bitcointalk. You won't miss it.
