If we have PBS members on our friends list who didn't purchase a standard or limited membership, are they able to receive/send personal messages?

Just wondering.....noticed some names on my friends list who I haven't seen on PBS since the change.......

If PBS friends  left PBS, will their names remain on our friends list?

They cannot PM even if they are on the Friend's list unless you have a transaction with them.  

They can read and write Friends postings on the Friends Bulletin Board, if they look,  which you can address to them or them to you but all your friends can read them i.e. they're not private.

I don't know the answer to your other ques.

I believe you have to physically delete them from your friends list if they are no longer members.

If you are just hoping to reconnect with someone, you could check over at goodreads. A lot of members and ex-members joined a group over there to keep in touch.
