Re: sending messages directly - anyone who adds their email address to the 'About' page will have a button under their profile picture that says "Send an email", even if their actual email address isn't visible. A message box pops up that says who it's going to but doesn't show their email address.
I guess it makes sense for Google to just use email rather than having some separate messaging function
