    I heard that mods and bgizzle can read PM's. Is this true? (It wouldn't be a very private message if it was.) haha

    They can't, but it's still not a good idea to be doing anything against the rules/stupid in pm's.

    I know haha. I wasn't asking for that reason. I just was wondering if they were violating basic respect rights

    I'm pretty sure Bgizzle can. Not sure about the mods.

    You're right actually, was looking around and found this:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=313780 (basically says that an admin can look at the databases or install a hack to be able to read them)

    So it's pretty much more a morals thing, and I have a good feeling bgizzle doesn't go around reading them.

    Yes, I can read them through a manual and very involved process if needed. The only time I've ever had to do it was in the case where death threats were made.
