Interesting that a module that was supposedly being worked on, in 2008 with implementation in Q2 is STILL a wish list item. One reason I recommended WA to our club was that it appeared that member to member messages were going to be a feature offered, and it would reduce by a huge amount, the time and resources needed to host and manage our email list.
I do not know how you conduct voting for features desired, as an administrator I have never received a poll of features we want, and if I did, member to member messaging would be a MAJOR item.
I think that you will find that a query to your customers about how many could or would use member to member messaging will result in a larger response than you realize.

We presently use Yahoo groups, and are trying WA on the 30 day trial. the deal breaker here maybe the lack of an email list server. At present, any member can send an email to the yahoo group address and it is sent to every member who has signed up to receive emails. members can receive the emails from the club as they are sent, or as a daily digest. This is the main reason we have the yahoo group.
We are all volunteers, and wanted to simplify the membership management, and WA meets our needs, except for the email.
The Board will decide in a few days, If WA is considering this feature, it would make our decision easier.
