    Do you think PMs should be read by mods?

    I was banned from a board last year for something I wrote in a PM to another member. Guess P on that board didn't mean Private. I just wondered everyone's opinion on this....

    Re: Do you think PMs should be read by mods?

    maybe the user reported the PM and it violated the guidelines, I don't think Mods read or even if they can read PMs
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

    Re: Do you think PMs should be read by mods?

    I would probably be uncomfortable with anyone other than the intended recipient reading my PMs. UNLESS... it was clearly announced somewhere that Mods may monitor them. Then I'm fairly warned. Otherwise, it's always good to be careful what you type anywhere.

    My friends and I just called a rose a rose. There was NOTHING posted that mods/admin would read your posts. We knew one of the members from another board and questioned her morality in a PM, not in a very nice way.

    Good god in heaven, tell me this isn't true....
    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    Re: Do you think PMs should be read by mods?

    They're called Private Messages, so I feel they should be kept private... unless you receive a PM that's a threat or in bad taste or something like that. Then it should reported to a mod or admin.

    I've seen alot of drama on other boards that's been caused over some unbelievable PMs sent and received. It really makes you wonder how sane some people who post on various message boards really are. After awhile true coliur can shine through. It's amazing how many people I thought were "cool" turned out to be major freaks.

    I hope not. I can't imagine anyone have that much spare time.

    Do you mean that we flamed the girl in the PMs or that the admin read them and banned us?

    WTF?
    Basically the gal had NO morals and LOVED to brag about her affairs (she was married with 3 kids). Like I said, we just called a rose a rose in our PMs.

    I will never understand the need some people have to brag about their affairs. Isn't that some thing you wouldn't WANT people to know about?

    Yeah... and I am only safe with Tui reading my PMs... er, wait. no! Just the ones that I send to him. So I'm with you Tom Chaney, to the recipient only. (Unless someone forwards? ) Sorry to hear about that Twinmom... but that's another reason why MiceChat rocks!!!

    Re: Do you think PMs should be read by mods?

    I've been suspended over a PM to a board owner’s pet troll :cough: :hack: I mean best friend, :clears throat: and learned quickly that you just have to take it in stride. In theory, PMs should be immune to moderating, but in this realm it’s really “anything goes.” So, even though PMs shouldn’t get out in public or be seen by others, always remember that they easily could, and write accordingly.
