    Only Brian, the owner of the site, and the co-administrators can monitor PMs not addressed to them. And they will only take a look where there is probable cause, i.e. a report of someone spamming via PM or sending hostile/inappropriate messages. When a member who receives such a message lets staff know, the admins check it out. Very occasionally, they might run something by the mod gang, but for the most part, the rest of us keep our grubby little paws off the private stuff.

    No, moderators such as myself can not read private PMs. The owner and administrators however can, a right they rarely exercise, if at all, and only with good reason.

    Your brother sounds cool.
    sometimes hes cool



    sometimes hes a right pain




    a bit like me

    I'm a homosexual. We invented it.
    Evented it or invented it.

    I've been making a lot of typos this AM. Guess I'd better not start my paper on immunity just yet.

    In a nutshell to make sure people comply with the Terms of Service. We take care of flamers, trolls, spammers and whatnot. I see SmilingBluEyes is online so I won't say much more in case she's trying to answer.

    We're also an open minded group. Prior to being a moderator I've had a few very minor disagreeements with them. We're always willing to talk with open-minded mature folks.

    I think I know what a spammer is, but what's a flamer or a troll?

    Thanks for the definition and the link. They're both helpful.

    To be honest with you, I've questioned this sometimes myself. I don't always appreciate a curt "this is being discussed here...(link provided).....this thread is closed...
    Again, please provide your feedback to the administrators on the link provided in this thread when things don't make sense. As I've said, I've used it several times myself. Sometimes you might get a clarification or if nothing else your opinion would be expressed.
    As an aside: I wish this thread had been here when I first started up, not too long ago. Its given me alot of 'inside' information now, and I understand things better. I'm embarrassed about some of my original posts now, because I didn't understand that so many things were tired subjects (BSN vs ADN) and I hope the regular members here are forgiving and will forgive me. Newbies can't know what's been going on for ages in here, without reading THOUSANDS of prior things!

    Now back on the subject of moderators, I only have noticed that one of them seems particularly sharp tongued and some of that moderator's posts seem more like "I'll always set everyone straight because I know it ALL and mine is the final word".

    ...So my specific question to Tweety is this: what is this 'link' you've mentioned? I've PM'd the moderator to protest the shutting down of a site, but I don't know if my feedback- since it was given via a PM- ever gets to the Moderator group or just to the one moderator PM'd (in other words, how does the Moderator group ever know if one Moderator is getting a zillion complaining PM's?)
