At least one mod is on record for using at least one of the above methods to read PMs in the past...

Kiddies don't let them fool you - your PM's are not a secret, safe or secure medium, never put anything private, secret or confidential in your PM's.

And don't forget that your REP given and received can be, and is read by the mods very easily.

Now go and enjoy the brilliant BBS with your eyes open.

I have no idea what you say is true not. However if it is to expect every mod not to look at private PM's is hard to believe.

They should feel ashamed if they are.

Well all I know is last year sometime, someone spoke to me about something that I had written in a PM to someone else and I know for a fact that the person I PMd did not say anything to the other person.

Maybe it was just coincidence. That's what I would like to believe

Absolutely, the notion that there is not an ability to read the PMs is frankly ridiculous.

It might not be 'normal course' to, I doubt it makes that interesting reading to peruse Biggins telling me 'I can see you reading the big brother thread' or Crystal Phallus calling me a wanker.

But that ability definitely exists. It probably should do, given there are some nasty shits about. But it is disingenuous to claim it's impossible and naiive to think it's never happened.

I was just negged by what appears to be the least popular person on here.

Does a double negative in the world of rep make a positive?

Also, handy getting sent back to the post I repped, but can that marker then be removed? Otherwise when I refresh the page after going much further down it'll take me make to the same post.

You currently have a Reputation Level of 242,652 and a Reputation power of 2,427 - which means that you will give 2,427 points for a positive Rep and take away half that for a negative strike.

Ironically, I would definitely have give you some pos here, but I now know I'll exceed my allowance for the day. Cheers for your help though.

I once repped Trolley posthumously on a revived thread because I felt sorry for him, and his rep went from red to green immediately.

Bit then it went red again soon after. I think mods have more rep power than they let on.

You were given a neg rep by someone with a lot of hit points. That was for a post about Christian Bale's accent. It occurred a few hours after you had neg repped them on a heavily political thread. I can't quite see how the two are related in any way but that's the way some people roll.

Perhaps there should be a modification to the system to prevent a score changing by more than 10% at a time in order to prevent cases where a single rep can have such a massive effect.
