    So are the conversations between member (otherwise known as PM's ) able to be read by moderators? Having everyone of my posts scrutinized is bad enough but if I want to contact a member in private, IS THAT PRIVACY RESPECTED / Guaranteed JIM???. To me it would seem to be akin to opening someone's mail to CENSOR it. Whats the answer JIM???? ws

    NO they are private. Mods cannot see them. I don't know about this software, but even admins can't read messages on other forum platforms that I've used.

    I would remind anyone that this board (legally speaking) is a commercial undertaking so you are not afforded any more privacy than the ownership chooses to offer. I'm in no way suggesting that Jim isn't respectful etc, just pointing out that this isn't the US Mail or some government entity so adjust your expectations of privacy accordingly. Or as my boss used to say, "If you wouldn't want to see it on the frontpage of The NY Times...don't put it in writing".

    No, Private messages are private, period. I can delete all your private messages, but cannot read them.. that is the only admin power that is available in the software.
