    I just can help but wonder just how secure my private messages are. I mean, there are an awful lot of weird things going on behind the scenes here at TS.com with the whole "Moderator Gate" and all. I wonder (sometimes) if the moderators sit there and read them all....there's got to be a lot of juicy private messages if you come to think about it.

    Tron moderators have no access to the private messages of others. If you worried about it dont use it use email!

    I am the only one that could read them if I desired, but I have no web pages setup to do that and would have to manually open the database and query the data which I have no desire or time to do.

    In order for someone to read these PMs, there'd have to be something interesting enough to read. I doubt many, or any, of our private conversations on, or offline would fit into the category of a "must read". One would have to have some serious "EGO" issues or severe paranoia to think that someone would take the time to read them.

    Just my "not-so-humble" opinion!

    Don't worry Tron...I'm sure everyone will assume that the PM you sent about "coming out" will only be thought of as you saying you were coming out to shoot

    I build computer networks for a living and I can tell you that nothing that goes out on the internet is private. TCP/IP was never designed to be private from its inception. As a matter of fact it was engineered so that all the different types of hardware the US government was using would talk to each other. People go to great lengths to secure information i.e. PIX firewalls encoding , etc. As a previous post said if you want it to be really private don't use email and whisper it very very quietly as even the walls might have ears.

    Ask one of your teenagers what packet sniffers are for .

    2 things about computers for sure.

    Nothing is private on the internet.

    And you can't erase a hard drive. Not even if you format it.

    I would feel better if they made them with fist-sized buttons.
