    They might have the power but it is against the rules. They only look at those they are mailed when a member has a complaint. If I remember right Gunny said the forum did not allow Mods the power to look at individual posters PM's.

    :rolleyes:

    Anyone can read the vbulletin forum and see that, yes indeed, mods can read PMs if admin grants them that power.

    Why they'd want to is another story. Well, I did start another thread about the emotional retardation of "conservatives" so there lies the answer.
