    The above is not what I was referring to.

    It was the Three Amigos "Editing".

    That is something I had hoped the three of you would consider but that hope is shot.

    As your reg, denying something you yourself participated in.

    I have erred in making this public.

    It was to prove lack of trust, now earned with OT.

    @JonC,

    I do miss some moderators that were active in the past like Dr. Bob and some like TCassidy who have crossed over.

    Personally, my own interactions with the moderators has been cordial and I have more often wondered how so few cover so much postings.

    Btw, I saw the post about trucking. It reminded me of the after school children waiting on parents and school buses one long ago afternoon.

    In the community, the city trucks were painted white with blue city emblems and lettering.

    A rather noisy large white truck rumbled down the road and the children were commenting about how fun it must be to drive that big truck.

    One child was perplexed though and ask my wife what the truck was.

    “That is a white trash truck, Juan.”

    “Ok. I always wondered what my father meant when he referred to someone as white trash.”

    True story from the mouth of a little innocent bi-lingual child. :)

    No. You erred in your assumption.

    Bolgna.

    This was from a pm.

    You don't remember it that's all.

    It was the Three Amigos caught with their new clothes.

    As I said before I should not have brought it up but here you are denying again.

    Tomorrow and the following two days taken out.

    Cannot deal with an opinion.

    Wish you would stop with the secular lyrics.

    Try a hymn that fits your mood.

    I know of a mod from another forum who says pms are read regularly by the moderators and admins

    there (without need of a complaint).

    Tell me I am a liar.

    Ooops! Looks like one of yours is missing too.

    Does it really make any difference?

    is this not a public forum?

    if you want tighter security, contact that person and exchange emails.

    Thank you for looking further into this for me.

    I hope it helps the casual reader who might peek into this thread.

    Well thanks.

    Why should not one not expect privacy for pms on this Christian forum?

    I want the security that this forum implies and to see if it is possible that it really exists.

    After I thought it did now I'm not so sure.

    They say I am not right in my posts by attacking my character.

    If they have nothing to hide why do they take that approach?

    Why are there men's and women's forums here?

    Don't they have an expectation of privacy?

    @SGO what part of the Admin Team is unable to routinely read PMs between members don't you understand. That that type of action happens on another board is irrelevant. We can't and don't here. If a PM gets reported then yes. We can. Otherwise, PMs fly under our radar.

    Was that first sentence a question?

    What happens on other boards just proves it happens.

    Did you or someone else eliminate Jon's post about looking into my file?

    If you don't read pms then you can look into files routinely?

    Every member has a file for "points" accrued and what else is in there?

    I am not wanting to know what is in my file specifically just what kinds of info is in files in general?

    Are you going to delete this because it's forum business?

    Why can't you reveal what affects all of us?

    I have heard of members being banned in the past the discretion of only one moderator.

    Has that changed?

    The women and men forums are dedicated to topics in which either gender considers inappropriate for general viewing by the public.

    Other than that, the BB is basically an open for every one to see with rules for various forums to post.

    Generally speaking, if you don’t want something ready by the public, don’t post it.

    The moderators have certain authority and the administrative staff have greater authority.

    Talking about private messages between selected forum members.

    pm = private private private message

    Not about threads which are open.

    To the first question, no. Though which files are you speaking of?
    To the second, yes, warnings and any points associated with them are tracked and the Admin Team has access to them.

    I am a moderator here and have been a moderator/administrator at another Bible site.

    I have never been able to read private messages of other members.
