If they have email notifications turned on, you can message them and then delete the message. Deleting is a bit glitchy so you want to first write something irrelevant, and then put the private message in a second comment on the same thread.

Actually, this has recently been proven to be faulty. Although this method will delete the information from the general view, it is still accessible to those with the know how. And, unfortunately, there are users on this site who go to lengths to deliberately access deleted messages. I would no longer recommend this method for such reasons.

Windows 10 Russian Mnemonic Keyboard

Unfortunately, I don't know how to load an image of a keyboard with the Russian-English equivalents set out here, so this is the best guide I have been able to come up with.

I suggest that English speakers use the Russian Mnemonic keyboard. Identical letters such as a, e, m, and o occupy the same keys in both languages. Russian equivalent letters with characters which differ from their Engish counterparts in form but not function occupy the English letter equivalent to the Russian character: the Russian “i” = “и” is entered in Russian text by pressing the “i” key on your keyboard. Similary, the Russian “r” = “р” is entered by pressing the “r” on the keyboard.

Some Russian letters have no direct English equivalent, and must simply be learned. Pressing English “x”, for example, produces Russian “ж” and English “w” produces Russian “ш”.

In order to enable the Russian Mnemonic keyboard, first you will have to load the Russian language module in Control Panel/Languages/add a language. When the Module is loaded, return to Control Panel/Languages/ Русский and click on options. Inside options, click on add an input device. From the list of keyboards that appears, select Russian – Mnemonic, then click on “add”. When you are returned to the list of languages, click on “save”, then exit Control Panel.

You can switch among keyboards by pressing the Windows button and SpaceBar. You also find a keyboard-selection button on the taskbar (which may need to be modified to display this button.)

Incidentally, this text is being written using the Windows + SpaceBar to move easily back and forth between keyboards.

In using the Mnemonic keyboard, some Russian letters and pronunciation marks do not appear immediately when the key is pressed, but require the pressing of an additional key or the spacebar in order to appear. You will have to do some trial-and-error to figure this out.

Some Russian characters require the pressing of two keys in quick succession, such as “ju” or "yu" to get “ю”.

In using the following chart, you switch to the Windows 10 Russian Mnemonic keyboard using the Win + Space-bar combination or selecting the Russian Keyboard from the task-bar. You press the key(s) listed under the English Keyboard header to get the Russian letter under the Русский Алфабит If I have time to edit this, I probably should place the English Keyboard letters first, but I have some other things I need to get to first.

Русский ---- English
Алфавит --- Keyboard
Identical letters:

а А = a A
е Е = e E
к К = k K
м М = m M
о О = o O

л Л = l L
и И = i I
н Н = n N
п П = p P

с С = s S
у У = u U
в В = v V
з З = z Z

Other Russian Letters
ц Ц = c C + Space-bar
х Х = h H
й Й = j J + Space-bar
ш Ш = w W
ж Ж = x X
я Я = q Q or ja JA
щ Щ = sc SC
ч Ч = ch CH
ё Ё = jo JO or yo YO
э Э = je JE or ye YE
ю Ю = ju JU or yu YU

I think that you're not taking into consideration that this is a language learning site, meaning that many people here can and do read Russian. And if someone is willing to take the time and effort to break into a deleted message that wasn't sent to them, what makes you think that they won't take the time and effort to break a simple code like using a different alphabet?
