Implicitly as in 'absolutely' ...
I appear to have killed this thread stone dead so I'll add what I hoped would come out of it by saying that 'if' by whatever means, a mod read something I (or anyone else) had written (in a PM) because they thought I was attempting to wreck ESMB that would be fair enough IMO and to try and gain an admission now is unnecessary and tantamount to trouble-making.
I'm not saying it happened or that it didn't or that it's even possible (or that it isn't) partly because I don't care, but I understand that things happened a few years ago that were never really cleared up.
My point seems to be that whats done is done ... but, if I believed one of my kids was doing something seriously 'icky' ... I'd ask them straight out and if I got an unsatisfactory response wait till they were out and go and CHECK (as far as I could) by poking about in their rooms!
That's what I'm like ... but (if I discovered damning evidence, lol) I'd ask them (again) to please tell me the truth and if they still didn't I'd tell them I already knew and that they were stupid to leave the evidence where I could find it and that they were wrong (assuming they were) for whatever they were doing in the first place.
Call me old fashioned ... call me cryptic (those that were here a few years ago will understand) ... call me what ever you like ... I'd just really like to see this sorted now and dropped.
This thread has nothing to do with Emma or the mods.
In the first post of this thread, I wrote:
First, please understand that this is not any kind of a complaint or criticism of ESMB security rules. I believe that ESMB security is as good as most boards of its kind.
However, I do need to ask anyone who wants to send me a private message on ESMB to treat the message as if it is public. DO NOT send me anything that you believe should be kept private in the board private message system.
Again, this has nothing to do with board security measures that are particular to this board.
So you see that I said it twice , right out of the gate.
And then I've repeated it a few times here in the thread as well.
This thread has to do with just regular old security, computer security.
This subject is actually very important right now, across the whole world, in many parts of the developed world. And I thought I would start a thread on it because somebody did send me a PM with sensitive information in it, and that's when it occurred to me to look at the actual security of messages. That's when I realized what I realized and wrote in the opening post of this thread.
And what I said, was what I meant to say.
