Default Do Moderators and Administrators Read PMs?

As a rule, no.

Yes, representatives of MouseOwners can read your private messages. They are saved in databases that are on our servers. So, just as your ISP can read all your email since the mail is stored on their servers, we can do the same.

But no, as a rule, we don't actually read them. None of the active moderators can even read them without going to administrators for help, since the only way to do so in vBulletin is directly from the database -- which is an enormous pain. (I can't even do that without asking for more technical help.)

This is not to say that all behavior in Private Messages is allowed. If people are behaving inappropriately (harrassment, etc.) via PM we'll invariably learn of it (from somebody involved) and deal with it if we think it necessary.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
