    Really minor item, but perhaps others are also confused.

    Is there a reason that the PM "request receipt" dialog box asks

    "Yes" or "Cancel"

    rather than "Yes" or "No"?

    It was confusing to me. I thought in the past that my two choices were:

    1. Request a receipt

    2. "Cancel" the PM entirely.

    So, I always asked for a receipt, even though I didn't want one. I later discovered this not to be the case, and "cancel" really meant "No" Perhaps this is confusing to others also?

    When the other person reads it, they confirm that they read it. So you know they got the message even if they don't reply.

    This still hasn't been fixed. It's not critical, but I do tire of being asked to send read receipts to people who haven't figured out that Cancel, in this context, actually means No.

    Maybe they want a receipt.
