    The only staff I don't get replies from are Developers ;)

    Although Kier did an awesome job last week at cleaning up some porn spam I found and he was the only one online and he responded straight away to my PM.

    Maybe you were PM'ing Dean? :LOL:

    I don't normally like PM's. On most communities they cause far to much drama. I much prefer everything out in the open and only use it for sensitive information.

    I've always got a reply back from everyone, one way or the other.

    @8thos you must be doing it wrong? lol :p

    Nah not at all. I'm not talking about my pms to them.

    I was referring to a post you made on admin extra about IPB moderators reading other people's PMs and acting on them. You said that if Xenforo moderators do it on here, they don't act on them or care or maybe they just don't read them at all. So that's what this thread was about. A lot of my PMs are asking for help or requests for addons or helping someone else etc. If they were reading my conversations it would be funny if they replied to some. That's all I was saying.

    'I don't care if xenforo mods read my pms but'

    It sucks when they don't reply :p

    Wait, are you saying over at IPB the mods can read the members private conversations even if the mod isn't involved in it?

    To the best of my knowledge (the last I knew) and personal experience, yes

    Wow, if thats true thats simply disgusting.

    I've shared, and had shared with me, some extremely sensitive information via private conversations here at XenForo. I would be horrified to find out that someone was looking in on that information.

    I, for one, never reply to private conversations that I can't see, read, or am not part of.

    Adam's hate over IPS because they apparently removed his access to the IPS community... its so funny but at same time so tiresome. All those claims of many so-called critical security flaws, also claiming all 3.x versions having them and now claiming that and this... He never gets bored..

    Was having a private conversation with someone on IPB; the staff unintentionally (or maybe intentionally; who really knows?) made a reference to the conversation on their forum. I assume with all they read they forgot where they read it.

    Another instance was when a topic was closed on their forum a member contacted me via PM and we both got a warning for continuing the conversation in private.

    I can recall at least once a staff member "jumping in" a private conversation. The same way you, I, or anyone else here can "jump into" this thread and reply.

    My dislike and distrust for Invision Power Services Inc (IPS), the developers of IPB; also commonly known as IP.Board is not without merit and I speak from my own personal opinion and experience.

    As for my claims on their lack of security, Digital Doctor said it best (quoting him)
