Personally I don't see anything wrong with pms. Kinda like talking on the phone. Whether you turn them on or leave them off don't matter to me. But I do think somethings should remain private.

Everyone here has a valid email address attached to there profile... Lets just use that to send private stuff. For less sensitive stuff.... use chat.

Just so everythings clear....

1. Everything on this forum to to be in the open.... its one of our cornerstones.

2. If someone ever does " get shown the door".... they will have ample oppertunity to get their contact info to those that needed it, and to clean up their account as they see fit ( from nothing, to delete everything). We dont toss you, and keep your stuff..... not cool.

3. We dont snoop........ were not the gestapo...

Excuse me? Ignoring the moral implications for a moment, while that is possible to do, it's not easy and would be extremely time consuming. I SERIOUSLY doubt the "other guys" would do such a thing even if I thought they had a mind to, which I don't.

This software, on the other hand, is too easy to view PM's, IMHO, with the right password. I could see everything on one screen in less than 30 seconds if I wanted. Scary simple.

Bob, while I like this concept, there are drawbacks. Only Admin users (you and I) have access to everyone's email address. Most users have chosen to not display their email address, and with good reason. It is very easy for web crawling search engines to scour pages and harvest email addresses for spamming purposes. So exposing your email address is not something I would recommend. There are other things that can be done, but they are rather obtuse. This is where PM's come in. It's what they were designed to deal with. But, you are the man in charge.

Sajji says ....

" In my country, viewing things address to others is a crime deserving of 30 lashes, so I have a pretty high regard for someone's personal conversation"

As for me, I can barley log into chat....

SO..... I think your pm's are pretty secure.


Turn it on Sajji!

Dearest MFDP...

It saddens me that this has to be my first post on Bob's site. However, I guess it has to be this way. Here's the deal. I like AP and ST, I also like Bob. He and I didn't see things eye to eye for a long time and it caused alot of tension. But, that's the way things sometimes go on the inna net.
Now, we're all good and actually B.S. on the phone.

Now, the reason I am posting here, before an intro...
Nothing pisses me off more than all the whining little bitches complaining about the "other" site. If you and your homies dislike it that much- go away. You can respond here that you want to be removed and I'll personally take care of it if that is what you desire. I as well as the other mods there cannot read your PM's, nor would I want to.

Can't we all just get along :roll:

Bobbo- I'll post up an intro later on. :cool:

How am I a whinny little bitch?? I am still on the other site, I havnt been MFing the "others"...

Many people have said that the "big dogs" not the mods could read everyones PM's. I was using them as an example and suggested that Bob do the same to make sure people used the pm's properly and NOT use them to be "whinny little bitches"...

FYI, I too chat with Bob and others on the phone, it definately WASNT that way in the beggining as im sure you recall.

I think it was clairified that do to software issues... reading pm's is nearly impossible. If was never suggested that the Mods were involved.
I have tried to make it clear that if you have issues with the other board... take it up there.

Were trying to do our own groove here....

EVERYBODY HERE THAT!

Bob knows as well as anyone, I don't like to take any crap from anyone.
I'm really just tired of all the BS that's going on between what should be friends and riding buddys.
