I joined a gridcoin mining pool. As a result, I cannot retrieve private messages. I can neither accept nor decline friend requests.

This is not a bug report. This is not a complaint. It's just to let people know this can happen.

If this was Star Trek, I'd say that you would have received a message saying:
”We are the Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.”

Too late now.

From what I gather the pool collects all the credits you earn, your will be unable to manage the share between processing their coins and your chosen projects and you can't leave the pool until you have processed sufficient coins. Further the "real" value of these coins is so low the amount donated to the project(s) they sponsor is pretty small.
I slightly disagree with Les - "You have been assimilated".

You're right. But, in addition, the way the pool manager works interferes with friend requests and private messages.

I don't even know if the friend requests and private messages were intended to be received by me or intended for the pool.
