idea for CM's for changemonth (in General)

There should be an option to stop sending a CM to sum1 if they havent gotten it yet. Like if u bid on something, but have to withdraw, instead of sending them a message that says 'yea, send to 'this char'' ill send money when received'... then 20 minutes later sending 'umm... forget that plz. srry' just make it to where we can undo our CM's. If this is too complicated, forget it. but its a thought...

Wow, there were a lot of mis-spellings in that one... and i probably should type posts in paragraph form, huh?

I personally would like to see the entire CM system get overhauled.

It's akin to sending an SMS on a cell phone -- it only caters to short throw away messages of the type: "I'm home". It is far from an internal email system, with a lack of features like selective deletion so you aren't victim to the 50 CM retention policy (I often forget about old CMs and lose them). You can't send multiline messages, so sending moderate amounts of data becomes counter-productive. You can't send nice a href links -- you have to send the full ugly address. It's the type of thing that was started as something simple, but now has really outgrown itself.
