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.
    In a way it is sort of like when the rep comments were made public, when previously there had been an expectation that they would remain annonymous. It's always shocking when private thoughts are made public, if it is unexpected. Yet I remember back then people said that nothing should be said that one would not stand by at a later date so, I just don't know what to think about it. *sigh*

    No. There is no user interface provided by vBulletin to do this. sprilis and I have the technical know-how for accessing the database but he and I both work professionally in IT and have enough respect to not do something so retarded/invasive.

People are fascinating creatures. I'd keep personal information out of pms and use email instead if you don't want anyone here to read your innermost thoughts.
    Apparently, I'm a different creature than you are, since I've never read PMs other than my own before. But I feel like I know you a little more now.

    Huh? It sounds like it was just innocent fun, at least from what the moderators are saying. Since they're apparently no longer able to access the data in question, I was only offering to help.

    Yeah right, thanks.

    Go away now.

    What I remember from reading Zergling's posts is that there was a pattern of bitterness and his style of moderating seemed to reflect that, as if he was picking on other members through his power as moderator (i.e. locking and sending threads to The Graveyard, sometimes in a very nitpicky fashion) -- it just seemed another way to channel his aggression.

    It's more common than you'd think. Though granted I only have 2 examples to draw from.
