That is, does PBS see the msg I typed to the sender whose book miraculously arrived unharmed, but due to being wrapped in newsprint was split open on 2 sides.  Thank goodness the PO put it into a clear bag to protect this WL book from falling out of the wrapper or getting wet.  I marked it in "good condition" cause it is, but felt compelled to wag a finger at the sender for poor packaging.

Jeanne,

They can see it if they get asked to step into the transaction by looking at your account, but they don't get notified that you attached a message to your book-checkin.

ok, hopefully the sender will take my constructive criticism to heart and not get snarky about it.  Thanks, Mary!

PBS admins can see the messages you attach to transactions, but there's no way that anyone has time to sit down and read the comments from 40,000 swaps each week. You can assume this info will only be looked at by PBS if there's some other reason for them to be looking at your account or at the sender's account.

Maybe they could hire the "Pottymouth Police" that troll CMT to read through all of the PM's, seems like those folks have nothing better to do. cheeky

oh no Lisa, I would actually like PBS  to see it but since I didn't RWAP it for bad packaging, I just wondered if they would see it.  No potty mouth here, just honest feedback.
