    I would call it a bit of a shame too. I ran a small board once and we had only technical information not of public interest in the hidden area.

    I saved the PM he sent me about the secret mod rituals and oaths. Interesting stuff.

    Whether you did or not, did you have the capability to read them before you deleted them? I've always had the suspicion that the Admin could read PM's if they wanted to.

    Actually it's not but hey sometimes it is. Are the madmins not allowed to vent? I think it would be far more immature and childish if it was done on the forum general than in the modbox.

    Admins CANNOT read PMs.

    But I think that flows back into the above replies. The same violation of privacy you'd feel if admins were able to read PMs is the same we feel about having our modbox conversations floating around the forum. What we say in private we expect to stay private as you expect your PMs to be.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Who the hell is Zergling?
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    Falcarius officially has complete utter contempt for all the moderators who who have ever got banned on MBTIc and INTPc. Falcarius wants to let it be known this has nothing to do with them bringing the forums into disrepute, but rather they always bloody forgetting him. First Falcarius was just about the only regular member not to be banned by raincrow007 ( or whatever crow it was), and now Zergling doesn't even PM him any of the gossip. The only thing Falcarius ever got when someone decided to leave somewhere in a fit of rage was a asteroid and a few volcanic Plinian eruptions from Jesus.:steam:

    Why do they always leave the dinosaurs out? Don't they know it is hard enough being one of the very few dinosaurs left without being subjected to the doctrinarian discrimination of the animal kingdom as it is?

    What's it matter if they do it in the modbox or in private pms or IMs? Not like anyone but the mods can read what's in the modbox, so in that sense it seems perfectly appropriate to me. If they did it in the public area of the forum, that would be different. I'm not really sure what the natures of those discussions were, so I guess technically I'll be withholding judgement, but I'm inclined to believe that as long as they don't let their personal opinions get in the way of treating members fairly and civilly, and as long as they don't publicly trash anyone, their gossiping isn't a shame.

    What's really a shame is that Zergling sent those pms.
    They're running just like you
    For you, and I, wooo
    So people, people, need some good ol' love
