I thought private messages are private, when sent to another member, we could speak freely. This doesn't appear to be the case. I put up a post within which I used the word pu### in referance to a small cat. The post was censored before I was returned, and as I knew no moderators were on-line, sent a P.M to a senior member who was online to clear up the confusion. The same word was censored in his private message as well. Are these messages moderated as well?? I understand the guidelines and was wondering if the software autmatically censors any word programmed in that is deeemed to be foul language?? Not a problem, just have police ourselves on the postings, but I am curious about the private messages. Are or aren't they seen only by the sender and recipient?? We figured this is an automatic thing, just wondered for future knowledge if I send another P.M. Anyhow Happy Easter, enjoy the long weekend if you can.
