    I went through both my PM's and sent messages at the end of the year to clean out old messages. I have not had administration clear out any. Check to see if your boxes are full so no new PM's will come through.

    I've had a notice of "This Message is Moderated" on a message I received, but I wasn't exactly sure what that meant. Never had one deleted that I know of.

    How do you know a moderator/administrator has deleted your messages?

    No e-mail is going to be totally private. If you use a work e-mail, the owner of the business has the right to read and delete any message them deem inappropriate. So I think it only stands to reason the Quilting Board has the same rights and ability. If you want something to be totally private you need to exchange e-mail addresses and go outside the board.
    I don't work for the QB, but I have worked in insurance for a great many years and have always told people that I trained, never put anything in writing that you don't want to see under your picture on the front page of a newspaper or television screen.
    There are a lot of rules for the QB, and I applaud them. When I started on this board several years ago there were a lot of snarky people and you never knew if your replies were going to be one of their targets. I don't believe anyone is sitting in a dark room reading all of our private messages, there must be a program that kicks out items for the administrators to check into. Please don't take it personal, they are only trying to protect the masses.

    She ( Patricia ) Private Messaged me that she removed it from the board . I know there are rules in all things but sometimes it gets to be a bit much . She deleted one of mine before because I used capital letters and an exclamation mark , stated wasn't allowed cause it was like yelling at someone ? Go figure , I was wowing there quilt I'll just read along & not post anything , just isn't worth 4 year old behavior

    The intent of all the rules is to keep the QB a good place to be on, and while I am sometimes frustrated with some of the interpretation of the rules, I respect the rights of admin to ultimately decide what is allowable.
    Anyone who isn't willing to accept this can always exercise their rights to go elsewhere.
    I also can attest to what quiltingcandy says in that no email is going to be totally private when you are communicating through a public forum, even from the private message part of it.
    A husband is the perfect confidant to tell your secrets to - he can't reveal them to anyone else because he wasn't really listening when you told him!

    neither the moderators nor I have access to your private messages.
    so, whatever was deleted was NOT a private message.
    you might have intended to send a private message, but whatever it was has to have been posted somewhere public.

    if you receive a notice that a "message is moderated" it refers to a Visitor Message somebody has posted to your profile. those are visible to any registered member who is signed in and who looks at the public part of your profile.

    neither the moderators nor I have the time or inclination to randomly or systematically check profiles to review visitor messages.

    members are able to moderate (edit or delete) their own Visitor Messages.
