I was just now looking at the Wish List Hold books on my account. I went to click the PM button for one of the books, because I wanted to offer a special deal to that wish lister. The PM on the Wish List Hold page says, "Send the sender a personal message." But when I click, and pull up the PM form, the address pasted in the " To:" field is the wish lister, not myself (the putative sender). This is as it should be, since it's the wish lister I want to write to.

Is there something I'm missing here? some sense in which the wish lister--who may or may not become the resquestor--is also the sender? Or is the label for this button in error?

from what you have described, it seems that the PM button should say "Send the wishlister a personal message" (or just "Send a personal message").
