do you save all your pm messages or delete them?

I'm a keeper freak. I keep all my PMs and all my emails too. (sometimes I delete truly unimportant ones), but I don't usually take time to go back and sort out the unimportant ones, so they just stay there. I can't delete them right away, I might want to reply to that person later! It's a compulsion thing :)

all depends on the reason for the conversation...

---if regarding a dispute I keep them.

---something I want to remember or refer back too, I keep them.

---just general conversation...I delete them

I just archive anything that isn't pertinent to me at the moment.

I delete all the "thanks" messages as soon as I've read them.  Anything involving a great transaction or a poor one, I keep.

I delete them as whatever they are talking about is done--transaction/deal/whatever.  Or if it takes too long  and they aren't at the top anymore I just let the system do it.   I've archived very few PMs.
