What do you think about forum Admins that read peoples PM's using an addon or in phpmyadmin? Somebody spied on me recently and got mad with what I said then messaged me about it.

I don't think it is right to invade peoples privacy like that, I certainly don't like it so I would never do it to others.

It definitely isnt right, if I found out an admin on a forum was reading my Pm's I would be furious.

Same here. It's really a member's right to have the PRIVATE messages be PRIVATE :p

On all of my past forums, if I heard about an argument taking place via PM, I would always check the database to make sure I was being told the full truth. I would ONLY look at PMs from that conversation though, I wouldn't dream of invading anybody's privacy.

I think messages should stay private, but also people need to bear in mind if they are at a webmaster/advert or promotion forum then its a forum full of admins so people should know that there are pm readers and some websites may use them and not disclose that they use a pm reader.

I use it in case of an argument and if members report it I can find out exactly what happened.
